State Quarantines 20 Counties to Contain Emerald Ash Borer

State officials have issued a quarantine for 20 Kentucky counties regulating the transportation outside those counties of articles that could harbor the emerald ash borer (EAB). The counties under quarantine are Boone, Bourbon, Campbell, Carroll, Fayette, Franklin, Gallatin, Grant, Harrison, Henry, Jefferson, Jessamine, Kenton, Oldham, Owen, Pendleton, Scott, Shelby, Trimble and Woodford. The quarantine prohibits "regulated articles" from being moved outside a quarantine area without a certificate or limited permit except under certain conditions. "Regulated articles" are defined as the emerald ash borer, hardwood firewood, ash nursery stock, green ash lumber, other ash material, and any other materials that present a threat of artificial spread of the emerald ash borer. You can refer to for more information on certificates and permits. To report a possible infestation, call the EAB hotline at 1-866-322-4512, or the Kentucky state emtomologist's office at 859-257-5838.
