What Actions Are Governmental Agencies Taking to Combat EAB in Indiana?

The United States Department of Agriculture, Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, division of Plant and Pest Quarantine (USDA APHIS PPQ) coordinates surveys, quarantines, and public education for EAB with state agencies and other partners.

The Indiana Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) and the Department of Entomology at Purdue University work closely with the federal agencies to manage EAB in Indiana.

The USDA Forest Service assists with restoration and maintenance of forest health.

Surveys for EAB

The IDNR, in cooperation with USDA APHIS PPQ, conducted surveys for EAB in each of Indiana’s 92 counties in 2006. To make a trap tree, surveyors remove a strip of bark from a young ash tree. Wounding the tree will cause it to release chemical distress signals, which attract EAB adults. At the end of the summer, surveyors cut down the trap trees and examine them for EAB larvae.

The Three-Level Quarantine for Ash Products in Indiana

Level 1: When EAB is confirmed at a site, the entire township(s) where it is found will be placed under quarantine for regulated ash products. These items may then not be moved out of the infested township without entering into a signed compliance agreement with the Indiana DNR.

Level 2: To further halt the spread of EAB, the Indiana DNR imposes a further level of quarantine at the County level.

Level 3: To restrict the movement of EAB into an uninfested State, USDA APHIS PPQ has imposed a quarantine at the State borders.

Public Outreach and Education

The public’s cooperation is the most important element of success in managing the spread of EAB. The Emerald Ash Borer Communications Team at Purdue University receives funding from both USDA APHIS PPQ and the IDNR to take the lead in public education about EAB. Besides this web site, we provide informational brochures about EAB, inserts for utility bills, educational material for classrooms, and speakers for appropriate groups.
