Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) was found in Boulder, CO, in September 2013. As a non-native insect, EAB lacks predators to keep it in check. EAB only attacks ash trees in the genus Fraxinus (so mountain ash are not susceptible). Visit the Colorado Department of Agriculture website for the most up to date information regarding the Emerald Ash Borer in Colorado.
