I have had several calls and emails lately about emerald ash borer from people who have been treating their trees. The question is: should I continue to do the treatments now that the EAB has moved on?

As a refresher, EAB was first detected in Indiana in 2002. Since then, it has destroyed millions of ash trees and it continues to move like a wave to the south and west, primarily by the movement of firewood and logged ash trees.
