emerald ash borer found in wheat ridge

Emerald Ash Borer

Unfortunately, this deadly beetle arrived in Colorado in 2013 and has spread to Boulder, Gunbarrel, Longmont, Lafayette, Lyons, Superior, Broomfield, Westminster, Arvada, and Fort Collins. The insect attacks Green, White, Black, and Blue Ash, which have zero immunity. It is just a matter of time before the EAB arrives in Wheat Ridge. Our Emerald Ash Borer Handbook shows homeowners how to identify ash trees and their EAB treatment options.
