EAB likely in most Lafayette-area trees, Purdue expert says

​The highly destructive emerald ash borer has been discovered in the city after being found in neighboring Lafayette last year, suggesting that most ash trees in the area now are infested, a Purdue University entomologist and expert on the invasive beetle said.

Cliff Sadof said homeowners need to decide now if they want to protect their trees next spring because it is time to plan against next year's crop of beetles or begin putting money aside to pay for tree removal. He predicts that the beetle will kill every untreated ash in the Lafayette-West Lafayette area in 4-5 years.
