Ash Borer Spreads

The Emerald Ash Borer has been found in another Northern Indiana County.

The department of natural resources says it is now in Allen County.

That brings the number of Hoosier counties where the tree killing insect has been found to 12.

The DNR will now ban anyone from taking Ash products from the county.

They hope that will slow its spread.

Infestations of the insect have killed millions of trees in the Midwest since it was found in the US back in 2002.
