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 looked everywhere for the screws in the first post and nobody knew what I was talking about till I went to Ace, where I should have gone first. They are actually considered a sheetrock screw! I can't see any use for them with sheetrock but I was told it was because of the coating on them. I have a beat up old trailer house at hunting camp and they are perfect for putting warped metal siding back together and super sharp like a self piercing screw. Sometimes they are called gutter screws too. The hex ones do work great for boots and four wheeler tires.  
    • I liked Lavine too, but coming off ACL surgery you get the feeling that he will lose some of that explosiveness that made him fun to watch.
    • And remember, turkey is not pork and doesn't benefit from high internal temperatures.   It dries out if overcooked.  160 is plenty, maybe even a little less. 
    • Also, turkey doesn't need to be "low and slow" to get to be tender. Crank the heat to 250+ if you like. I've had the smaller breasts done in just 2 1/2 to 3 hrs. FWIW, I just rub it down with olive oil and apply your favorite rub.  If injecting at all, Creole Butter is a nice, quick, easy option. Apple mixed with cherry or hickory are my favorite woods to use.    
    • Well, that was interesting! The same trade that would have been good last year is seemingly brilliant this year. Butler immediately shores up our defense and creates additional scoring for this young, suddenly legitimate team. Great move to start the new year, and a good draft prospect at #16 to boot. While I do like Lavine, we seemed to do a bit better with him sidelined which is not an indictment on his talent, but rather proof that he didn't quite fit our scheme. All in all, this was about as lopsided a trade as I can think of and we should be pretty darn happy with the return we got!
    • What a treat to see a tanager.
