In partnership with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) has detected emerald ash borer (EAB) for the first time in the following counties: Dunn (town of Rock Creek), Oconto (town of Little Suamico), Pepin (towns of Lima and Waterville), and Shawano (city of Shawano). These are the first new county detections of 2020 for Wisconsin. There have also been 30 new municipal detections in counties where EAB was previously detected.
To date, Wisconsin has found EAB in 56 of the state’s 72 counties. The entire state is part of the EAB federal quarantine area, so there will be no regulatory changes as a result of these detections.
More information about EAB and detection maps for Wisconsin and the nation can be found at https://datcp.wi.gov/Pages/Programs_Services/EAB.aspx.
Note: DATCP will send notifications only when EAB is found for the first time in a county.
