Ohio Department of Agriculture officials have confirmed the presence of emerald ash borer in Belmont, Crawford, Knox and Madison counties.
Residents are being urged to use caution when transporting firewood to help protect against the artificial spread of this and other insect pests.
In June of 2011, the Ohio Department of Agriculture’s emerald ash borer quarantine was officially rescinded because the pest has been found throughout most of the state, including Wayne National Forest.
That's the 'Screw It, We Give Up' policy solution.
