Knox County: Emerald Ash Borer Management Program

  • 04/15/2013
  • 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM
  • 180 S. Soangetaha Road, Galesburg
The presence of emerald ash borer (EAB) has been confirmed for Knox County. EAB is a devastating exotic pest that attacks one of the most popular landscape trees in America, the ash tree. Unlike most native borers which only target dead or dying trees, EAB preys on healthy ash trees.

In response to this announcement the University of Illinois Extension will host an EAB workshop on Monday, April 15, 2013, 10-2:00 pm at the Knox Agri Center in Galesburg. Specialist from around the state will be available to inform homeowners, municipalities, and businesses what this means for Knox County and how you can protect and slow the spread of this voracious insect. 

Registration is required by April 11. Lunch is provided to those who register.

This event is being held at the Knox Agri Center, Farm Bureau, University of Illinois Extension office.
