  • Insect traps going up across Kentucky

    As tourists and Kentucky residents travel across the state this spring and summer, they may see unfamiliar objects in the trees. These are not debris but rather traps for two potentially devastating tree insect pests—the emerald ash borer and the gypsy moth.
