#The Emerald Ash Borer

Buggy about bugs

One day this past spring I was in the Neosho Parks Department office doing weekly paperwork when I received a telephone call. The young man on the other end of the line identified himself as an employee of Missouri Department of Agriculture and was asking if it would be okay if he hung a couple Emerald Ash Borer traps in Morse Park along Hickory Creek.

Water your trees

We feel like we are mourning the loss of an old friend. The stately old American elm tree in our front yard has succumbed to Dutch Elm Disease (DED). It has stood proudly looking over Victory Memorial Drive for nearly 100 hundred years and has shaded our house for as long as we have lived here and for many years before. Now it has lost at about 80 percent of its leaves and is sporting a bright orange ring around its trunk. It is a huge tree which survived the waves of DED in the ‘70s and ‘90s which leveled most of the American elms on the Parkway and on the boulevards across the city. We have been inoculating it every other year for at least the last 20 years, but I do think the heat and drought this summer contributed to the tree’s surrender to DED.

Progress in the Parks: Buggy about Bugs

One day this past spring I was in the Neosho Parks Department Office doing weekly paperwork when I received a telephone call. The young man on the other end of the line identified himself as an employee of Missouri Department of Agriculture and was asking if it would be okay if he hung a couple emerald ash borer traps in Morse Park along Hickory Creek. Much of my career with the Missouri Department of Conservation I worked with different insect outbreaks or population surveys of one type or another. Most of the traps that I have dealt with are usually small and mostly inconspicuous, usually going unnoticed by most citizens. Traps like the bright orange Gypsy Moth traps that have been placed around Missouri for many years occasionally draw a few questions, but for the most part they go unnoticed.

Answered Questions

I have moss growing not only in the yard but in my flower gardens. Should I just remove it and put it with yard waste or mix it into the ground/dirt? Some places it is dried out should that be treated the same? Thank-you Hennepin County Minnesota. Cottoneaster dying #762695.

City of Grand Junction responding to tree canopy threats

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) -The City of Grand Junction is increasing efforts to address increasing pressure from insects and drought threatening trees in public areas. One primary issue the city is working to address is damage to Ash trees, which make up 23% of the public tree inventory. Ash trees are susceptible to pests like Lilac Ash Borer and Ash Bark Beetle. The Emerald Ash Borer is an even more damaging insect that has caused sever damage to eastern slope communities. Parks and Recreation expects them to eventually migrate to the western slope.
