The Emerald Ash Borer was first discovered in the U.S. near Detroit MI in 2002. As of November 2016, it has spread into 27 other states. In the Summer of 2013, EAB was found in Boulder, Colorado near the intersection of 30th and Iris. Since then it has also been found in Longmont and Gunbarrel.
Preemptive application of the injectable insecticide emamectin benzoate is the recommended treatment for trees that are to be saved. (Insecticide Options for Protecting Trees from Emerald Ash Borer-2nd Edition, North Central IPM Center) Otherwise, tree death usually occurs within 2-4 years of the bugs presence.
All untreated Ash trees will become infested and have to be removed.
