http://www.mda.state.mn.us Emerald ash borer (EAB) is an invasive beetle that attacks and kills ash trees. It was found in Minnesota in a St. Paul neighborhood in May, 2009 and has since been found in Minneapolis. On April 29, 2010 MDA officials announced the finding of the insect in Houston County, in extreme southeastern Minnesota. Officials are stepping up monitoring efforts and alerting residents about the destructive tree pest's ability to spread by hiding in firewood.
