Public Information Emerald Ash Bore Beetle

An invasive beetle called the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) has been spreading toward the state of Utah, and each property owner in South Salt Lake can prepare for this pest's arrival. An adult EAB is a green metallic-looking beetle about 1/2 inches long. It lays its larvae in the inner bark of an ash tree, which ultimately causes the tree to die within two years. However, EAB only attacks the Ash tree species. The EAB has been migrating west; EAB will likely arrive in Utah within 10 years. 

Although there is no known treatment which can effectively stop an infestation, the most effective method for Utahns to battle EAB is to choose to plant other species of trees which the EAB will not infest. 

The city has removed the Ash tree from the approved planting list in our landscape handbook. All new city trees will be selected from other species. You can do your part too by choosing to plant other tree species. For more information about the EAB, please visit
