MOVING FIREWOOD AND OTHER REGULATED ARTICLES FROM QUARANTINED AREAS IS PROHIBITED!
As the United States continues to expand its export markets around the world and increase the variety of agricultural commodities it imports, the U.S. has a greater chance to bringing in unwanted pests such as Emerald Ash Borer and Asian Longhorned Beetle. In Kentucky, if you suspect you have found a non-native pest, please contact your county cooperative extension agent for verification. Since they are located in the county where you live, they will be the quickest to help you with the identification process. Should they have any issues, they will send it to the University of Kentucky for further analysis. Always feel free to contact our office as well should you have any questions.
