The emerald ash borer has been found in a second county in Kansas, adjacent to the first county where it was found and still remains, in the Kansas City area. Previously only in Wyandotte County, an adult specimen was removed from an EAB survey trap located near the Johnson County (KS) landfill and its presence was confirmed by officials on July 11, 2013. This confirmation has led to an immediate intrastate quarantine to stop any further spread. Regulated items under quarantine include the following:
· The emerald ash borer, (Agrilus planipennis [Coleoptera: Buprestidae]), in any living stage of development;
· Firewood of all hardwood (non-coniferous) species;
· Nursery stock of the genus Fraxinus (Ash);
· Green lumber of the genus Fraxinus (Ash);
· Other material living, dead, cut, or fallen, including logs, stumps, roots, branches, and composted and uncomposted chips of the genus Fraxinus (Ash)
Over the past several months it has also been found in two new states, New Hampshire (March) and North Carolina (June), bringing the total number of states where it’s been found to 20. It has still not been found in Nebraska.
