EAB Side ProfileEAB LarvaThe emerald ash borer (EAB) is an exotic insect pest from Asia. The flattened, creamy white larval stage feeds below the bark and cuts off the living, water and nutrient conducting vessels causing tree death. Adults are small elongated oval beetles that are metallic green in color. This insect first colonizes the top of ash trees, then moves down the tree.EAB Larva Tunnels

EAB has been positively identified in Iowa.  EAB kills all ash tree species and is considered to be one of the most destructive tree pests in North America.  While no one can accurately predict when the insect will arrive in Clive, it has been detected in several counties in Iowa.  The City, working in conjunction with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources, the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship and other regulatory agencies, will address efforts and further develop this EAB plan as additional information becomes available.
