Emerald Ash Borer info

6 posts in this topic

Here are a couple of links to the U of M's extension service regarding what should or should not be done with regards to Emerald Ash Borer.

Emerald Ash Borer

Don't treat Emerald Ash Borer

The first gives some background, the second is when / how to treat.

I figured this would be the easiest place for everyone to get their information.

I'll leave this up for a month or so, after that we'll see how harsh the infestation is.

Great info. Thanks LwnmwnMan2 for posting it. I have had several people ask me this year what to do with the Ash bore bettle and I have told them all the same thing. Nothing... Until they know that the dirty little bugger is in the area. I read simular articals in nursury magazines that I get and they all say the same thing. Don't waste your money but keep on top of where the Bettle has moved to in acordance with your area. Thanks again for the great info.

To all concerned re:EAB Lwnmwrman's link also has tree identification photos, so before you get your undies in a bunch, make sure you have ash trees to begin with. My neighbor was all worried until I checked out her trees: they are boxelders, not ash, hence no worries.

With the hub-bub of EAB having died down a bit, I unstickied this topic.

Yes, it's still an issue, and yes, information will still be available.

Good luck!!

Tree care companies are going to make a fortune off this thing.....I have already been asked about it by several customers. We are starting to get our prices figured out now. In talking with some other companies I can't believe what they are going to be charging for this. We have looked into the products that will treat it and they are not very expensive at all. $45,000 per year just for the trees at the state fair grounds, unbelievable.

    •   I'm on my second copy, the binding is not very good and before you know it pages begin to fall out, but as far as explaining technique, meat handling safety, use of curing salts and spices I think the book is a great resource.  I've given several copies to friends.  As far as the recipes, they are somewhat standard, but the same can be said for many other sausage books or online sources. I seem to make personal changes (like increasing garlic and black pepper) to most sausage recipes plus I sample a pattie to access the seasonings and will adjust if needed. I do think the amount of added fat is a little heavy handed for me, I find ground pork butt to perfect for me.  I prefer to make my own seasoning mix, and use very fresh spices... We order 3 times a year from spice companies to keep everything fresh, I only buy spices from the grocery store in an emergency, there is no guarantee of their freshness. 
    •   Auu, great plan. Oh by the way. Those aren't nails sticking through the roof sheeting is it? You may find a Shishkabob bird some morning if they get to running each other around in there!
    •   Auu, since it's not a Faith based discussion it should be pretty easy for you both to use humanist science facts to come to the same conclusion and agreement. Carry on!  
    • If our politicians were serious about reducing the cost of healthcare  they would be addressing the big pharma companies.   Check this out: http://wendellpotter.com/2016/03/the-lobbyist-who-made-you-pay-more-at-the-drugstore/    In my simple view of the world all that would be needed is a law passed saying the pharmaceutical companies could not charge more than 10% for the same drugs as is being charged by the next highest countries cost.  That would save Trillions over a 10 year period ( Caveat, I made that number up, but you get the idea )   
    • It's a break action shotgun with one barrel stacked over the other.   Hope this helps  
    • In this depth range I still use the DT10. Unless the weeds are growing up quite a bit. If they are then I will use the DT6. 
    • the complete ridge line of the roof is a vent.    
    •   Thought, small vents at top ends? Peeeu!
