From Jeff Hahn, University of Minnesota Extension entomologist


With the recent discovery of an emerald ash borer infestation south of La Crosse, WI, there is an additional emerald ash borer First Detector workshop being organized.  It will be held on Tuesday April 28 in Winona at the Tau Center on the Winona State University campus.

What is an EAB First Detector?
First Detectors are volunteers trained to help citizens diagnose and report possible infestations of invasive species to the Minnesota Department of Agriculture. First Detectors are a part of the National Plant Diagnostic Network (NPDN) First Detector Program.

How to get involved:
Find details and registration on the April 2009 Winona workshop at http://www.extension.umn.edu/pesticides/2009/eab/.  Please pass this information on to anyone that you think may be interested.  Please let me know if you have any questions about this workshop.
