Where to Call If You Suspect Emerald Ash Borer


If you think you have emerald ash borer on your property, or think you may have spotted it somewhere else, here's what you should do:

  • Check out our emerald ash borer identification site to verify if the insect looks like the one you saw, or that the damage to the ash tree looks like the serpentine trails underneath the bark.
