Living and Working in a Quarantined Area – What Are the Rules?

After EAB is confirmed anywhere in Indiana, a
Three-Level Quarantine of regulated ash products will be instituted to restrict EAB’s movement into uninfested areas.

The Three-Level Quarantine

In Indiana, a three layered quarantine is used to slow the spread of EAB.
   
First Level: The township or townships in which a living specimen of EAB is found undergoes a quarantine to keep regulated items from moving out of the infested township.  This includes any ash wood that could harbor living emerald ash borers such as firewood, tree limbs, or logs with bark attached. These items may not be moved outside of the quarantined township without written permission from the Indiana DNR in the form of a compliance agreement.

Second Level: After EAB is found, the entire county is quarantined. As with the township quarantine, any ash wood that could harbor living EAB may not be moved outside of the quarantined county without written permission from the Indiana DNR in the form of a compliance agreement. However, regulated ash items may be moved among the county’s townships where EAB was not identified.

Third Level: Because of a federal quarantine managed by USDA APHIS PPQ, regulated ash wood may not be moved from Indiana to any other state. This directive is also in effect for all of Michigan’s Lower Peninsula, Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois.
