6  Been in Ohio for 10 Years, (Estimated), first found in June 2011. All other known infestations found since 1996 have been declared “eradicated”  Does not seem to move fast/produce huge #’s  Generalist; Maples, Birch, Willow, Box Elder  Lifecycle is similar to EAB, can change to an adult within one year; Slower up here?

7  Present in the County  Scales protect insects  Disease follows scale after heavy infestation  25% are supposed to live after an attack…  Urban options do exist

8  Native, population booms every 10 years  We were overdue for a large boom in 2010 and we got it for 2 years!  Population is hardly noticeable now.

9  Seems rampant this year  DO NOT Prune oak during growing season  Oaks graft their roots  Pruning or construction damage is usually the cause

10  Before you start any chainsaw work…

11  Invasive shrub  LOTS of berries  Nitrogen fixer  Stump applicator with broadleaf herbicide can be done anytime of the year except spring, its extremely effective.
