(Wisconsin Ag Connection) -Another case of the emerald ash borer has been identified, this time in Marathon County.

The infestation was confirmed on a private property along the Wisconsin River by a tree care service. The discovery means that Marathon County will now be under quarantine, which means private citizens cannot take firewood from the area to non-quarantine counties. For businesses handling wood products that could carry EAB, it means that they must work with DATCP to assure that their products are pest-free before shipping.

Marathon County joins 46 other Wisconsin counties where EAB has been found. They include Adams, Brown, Buffalo, Calumet, Chippewa, Columbia, Crawford, Dane, Dodge, Door, Douglas, Fond du Lac, Grant, Green, Green Lake, Iowa, Jackson, Jefferson, Juneau, Kenosha, La Crosse, Lafayette, Manitowoc, Marinette, Marquette, Milwaukee, Monroe, Oneida, Outagamie, Ozaukee, Portage, Racine, Richland, Rock, Sauk, Sawyer, Sheboygan, Trempealeau, Vernon, Walworth, Washington, Waukesha, Waupaca, Waushara, Winnebago and Wood.
