DES MOINES — A highly destructive inset that attacks and kills ash trees has been confirmed in Bellevue and Marquette in Iowa.

The state of Iowa today declared the emerald ash borer has now spread to 41 Iowa counties, which now includes Jackson County. The EAB was found in Clinton in 2015.

Native to Asia, EAB is responsible for the death of tens of millions of ash trees nationwide.

The Bellevue discovery in Jackson County came after city staff alerted state officials of an ash tree that was displaying symptoms of an EAB attack. For Marquette in Clayton County, a member of the Iowa EAB Team noticed the tree while in the area. In both cases further investigation led to the collection of insect specimens that were later positively identified as EAB.
