Items of Interest:

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.

Ohio State Ask an Expert

Emerald Ash Borer
Ohio Department of Agriculture. Plant Health Division.
Emerald Ash Borer (Agrilus planipennis), an ash tree-killing insect from Asia, was identified in Ohio in 2003. The department has been battling the pest through detection, regulation, and public outreach in an attempt to protect the state's more than 3.8 billion ash trees over the past decade. The pest has since spread from the initial detection in near Toledo to nearly all other parts of the state (PDF | 438 KB). If you believe your trees to be infested and would like to learn more about treatment or removal of your ash trees, please visit Emerald Ash Borer Information Network for more information.
