Items of Interest:

Illinois Invasive Species Awareness Month (May)
Invasive.org.
The goal of Illinois Invasive Species Awareness Month (ISAM) is to provide resources and opportunities to help stop the spread of invasive species in Illinois - each and every person can make a difference, including you!

Great Lakes Early Detection Network App
Ohio State University Extension.
Ohio State University Extension has released a new app for spotting and tracking invasive species -- non-native organisms such as Asian carps, purple loosestrife and Asian longhorned beetle -- to try to keep them from setting up beachheads and hurting the economy and environment. By using the free Great Lakes Early Detection Network app, a person can take pictures of suspected invasive species -- whether of farm, forest or water -- and upload the pictures and locations for verification. Based on this early warning, scientists can send out alerts, map the spread and figure out a battle plan.

Emerald Ash Borer in Illinois
Illinois Department of Agriculture.
Native to Asia, the Emerald Ash Borer is an exotic beetle that was unknown in North America until June 2002 when it was discovered as the cause for the decline of many ash trees in southeast Michigan and neighboring Windsor, Ontario, Canada. It has since been found in several states from the east coast spanning across the midwest and in June 2006, we discovered that it had taken up residence in Illinois. Each year Illinois Department of Agriculture officials submit samples from various purple EAB traps throughout the state and send them to the USDA's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) to confirm the presence of EAB. Anyone who suspects an ash tree has been infested should contact their county Extension office, their village forester or the Illinois Department of Agriculture at (815) 787-5476.

2015 Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois Weed Control Guide
Ohio State University Extension; Purdue University Extension; University of Illinois Extension.
The 2015 Weed Control Guide, a joint publication from the Cooperative Extension Services in Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois, explains the importance of weed control and gives suggestions on herbicide management strategies for corn, popcorn, sweet corn, soybeans, small grains, and forages.
