Emerald ash borer

Emerald ash borer (EAB), a non-native and invasive insect that kills ash trees, has moved into Atlantic Canada.

The City of Charlottetown has partnered with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) to install traps in six locations throughout Charlottetown to monitor for the insect. The traps, which are being placed on City property, are suspended high in the ash tree canopy. They do not contain any pesticides and residents are asked not to disturb the traps.

EAB causes about a 99 per cent mortality rate in ash trees. The earlier EAB is detected, the better prepared the City can be to manage the outbreak. There are approximately 313 ash trees in the City’s street tree inventory. City staff have begun monitoring the ash for symptoms and signs of stress and this work will continue over the summer.

To assist in the prevention of the spread of EAB, the public is reminded not to move firewood. Firewood is one of the highest risk pathways for moving insects, pests and diseases around. The public is asked to use the “Burn it Where you Buy it” philosophy, which involves buying campfire wood near the campsite being visited and leaving behind any wood not burned.

If purchasing wood to heat a home or cottage, the wood should be sourced as close to the residence as possible.
