The first case of emerald ash borers emerging this spring was found the week of April 16 in Jefferson County. Since the borers do not emerge all at once, owners of ash trees need to watch for signs of the pest during the next three to four weeks, said Lee Townsend, extension entomology professor in the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture.
The borer’s emergence is almost three weeks ahead of normal due to the mild winter and a very warm March, Townsend said.
