EAB has already been located in other portions of Waukesha County, according to the website:
"Symptoms of an EAB infestation can include canopy thinning starting in the upper portion of the tree, formation of sprouts at the base of the trunk, bark splitting, and woodpecker damage," states the website. "These symptoms indicate general tree stress, and can be due to EAB. However, they also can be caused by diseases or insects other than EAB. Specific signs of EAB include D-shaped exit holes (~3/16 inch wide) in the bark of the tree, S-shaped larval tunnels and/or larvae (cream colored, up to 1½ inches long) beneath the bark, and adults (metallic green, ~3/8 inch long)."
If homeowners believe EAB has been found on a tree, the city's website states they should contact 1-800-462-2803.
