ISU study looks at ash borer problem - Pontiac, IL - Pontiac Daily Leader:
It’s been a pest that has created issues for this community for more than a year. The emerald ash borer has made itself at home here and won’t be leaving until it runs out of housing.
The housing is the ash tree. Many were planted in Chenoa many years ago.
It is believed the EAB, as it is commonly known, made its way from the Chicago suburbs as long as 10 years ago. The mode of transportation appears to be by motor vehicle through the transportation of firewood.
