-A A +A
By Joel Reichert

The emerald ash borer, a foreign-born insect that is decimating ash trees in the Midwest, was found near Cedarmore in Shelby County last week. That is the first confirmed sighting of the pest in Kentucky. A few days later, the borer was also found in Jessamine County, according to a press release from University of Kentucky entomologists.

UK Senior Nursery Inspector Joe Collins said entomologists are trying to determine the extent of the infestation in Shelby County, and he predicted “it will spread.”
