What is that purple thing hanging in the tree?
It's a sticky trap that Illinois Department of Agriculture officials and cooperators are using to identify where the invasive pest Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) is. The traps will not bring Emerald Ash Borer into the area that is already not infested. It will help officials determine if Emerald Ash Borer is already present in the area. The trap uses Manuka oil as an attractant to lure the beetle to it if Emerald Ash Borer is in the area. The surface of the trap is coated with a sticky material which causes the Emerald Ash Borer to adhere to it. The Emerald Ash Borer flight season is from May through August. The traps will be removed after the flight season is complete. Then the traps will be examined for the presence of Emerald Ash Borer.

Emerald Ash Borer Found at Jaycee Park
A tree in Jaycee Park was discovered to be infested with Emerald Ash Borer (EAB), an exotic but destructive beetle that attacks ash trees. The tree will be removed according to the guidelines of the Illinois Department of Agriculture. If you suspect EAB has infested a tree on your property please contact your Village Office.
