    Just an FYI, this is an excerpt from the Cornell Branching Out, Volume 16 No. 9 Newsletter

    Emerald Ash Borer Insecticide Options
    Dan Gilrein, Extension Entomologist
    We owe thanks to the authors of the newest edition of the publication,
    Insecticide Options for Protecting Ash Trees from Emerald Ash
    Borer (http://www.emeraldashborer.info/). We should note that not
    all the insecticide information listed is applicable to New York,
    specifically: Tree-Age is not approved for use and Safari can only
    be used indoors in NY State. Only certain Tempo materials (these
    are landscape-use only) are labeled for emerald ash borer adults on
    foliage, including Tempo 20WP (EPA# 432-1302) with
    supplemental label, Tempo 20WB Golf Course (432-1338), Tempo
    SC Ultra Insecticide (432-1363), Tempo Ultra GC (432-2452), and
    Tempo Ultra WSP (432-1377). Sevin SL labeling does not currently
    include uses as a bark or foliage spray for EAB. Always read labels
    to be sure sites and uses are listed; applicators in other states should
    check approved labels and local guidelines in their area.”

    EAB Quarantine in NY
    Speaking of EAB… On July 24 the NY State DEC announced the emergency
    quarantine for Cattaraugus and Chataqua Counties for Emerald Ash Borer.
    The quarantine order prohibits the movement of ash both within the two
    counties and beyond, and applies to:

    Any size of ash lumber, logs and trees,
    including leaves, bark, stumps, limbs,
    branches and roots

    Any item made from or containing ash wood

    Wood chips and bark mulch larger than an inch, as well as
    firewood of any species. Even though the beetles attack only ash
    trees, it’s hard to differentiate between ash and other hardwoods
    once it is split.
