Citizen Alert: Emerald Ash Borer Detected in P.G. County


The emerald ash borer (EAB), a serious invasive insect that feeds on and kills ash trees, has been detected in Prince George’s County. The Maryland Departments of Agriculture and Natural Resources have partnered to develop and implement an EAB eradication plan, and late last week DNR introduced an online In Focus page to help educate citizens about the pest.

To help control the spread of EAB, Maryland citizens and visitors are asked to strictly comply with an established quarantine that prohibits the transport of firewood from the infested area to any other area, and to refrain from bringing firewood into Maryland from other states.
