Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) Discovered in La Grange Park, IL
In September of 2011, the Illinois Department of Agriculture confirmed the presence of emerald ash borer in a trap which was located at 28th and Harrison in the Village of La Grange Park. Because of this confirmation, the Village is now on the "Illinois EAB Confirmed Infested Locations".
Ash trees can be infested with EAB for a few years before the tree begins to
demonstrate any signs of EAB infestation. Symptoms of EAB include:
- Canopy dieback
- D-shaped exit holes
- Shoots sprouting from the tree trunks
- S-shaped larval galleries underneath the bark
La Grange Park allows Homeowner Preventative Treatment For Emerald Ash Borer:
The Village of La Grange Park recognizes that Insecticides can extend the life and benefits of healthy ash trees during an EAB infestation. These applications are most critical for protecting trees in the years when surrounding ash trees are dying and the population of EAB is near its peak. They also buy time to allow the development of newer and better controls (insecticides and biological controls) for fighting EAB. If you elect to treat your ash trees, there are several insecticide options available and research has shown that treatments can be effective.
Winkler's Tree Service offers preventative care for the emerald ash borer or we can remove infested trees for you!
