Illinois Invasive Species Awareness Month - May 2013
Invasive.org.
The goal of May 2013 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!

White-Nose Syndrome Confirmed in Illinois Bats (Feb 28, 2013)
Illinois Department of Natural Resources.
The Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) today confirmed the presence of White-Nose Syndrome (WNS), a disease fatal to several bat species, in four Illinois counties. The University of Illinois- Illinois Natural History Survey (INHS), the United States Forest Service (USFS)-Shawnee National Forest, the University of Illinois' Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory (UIVDL), and the USGS National Wildlife Health Center-Madison, WI (NWHC) assisted in the discovery of WNS which was detected in LaSalle County in north-central Illinois, Monroe County in southwestern Illinois, and Hardin and Pope Counties in extreme southern Illinois.

New App Lets You Report Invasive Species (Oct 15, 2012)
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 Beetle Found in Two Additional Northern Illinois Counties (Sep 26, 2012)
Illinois Department of Agriculture.
A destructive pest that feasts on ash trees has been discovered for the first time in two northern Illinois counties. The Illinois Department of Agriculture (IDOA) today confirmed infestations of the emerald ash borer (EAB) in Lee and Henry counties. Currently, 39 Illinois counties are under quarantine to prevent the "man-made" spread of the beetle. The quarantine prohibits the intrastate movement of potentially-contaminated wood products, including ash trees, limbs and branches and all types of firewood.

Governor Proclaims Thousand Cankers Disease a Threat to Illinois' Walnut Trees (Feb 9, 2012)
Illinois Department of Agriculture.

Quinn approved regulatory measures this month to restrict the movement of potentially-infested products into Illinois as a preventative measure to protect the economical and environmental well-being of Illinois' walnut tree industry.
