Emerald Ash Borer - click for details
Use this form to report a possible emerald ash borer sighting in New Hampshire. Capture and preserve the insect if possible (place in freezer or in a jar with rubbing alcohol), or provide a photo of the tree damage, insect or damaged wood. Before submitting a report, please look at signs and symptoms or these pictures of emerald ash borer insects, damage and look-alikes. Emerald ash borer only infests true ashes (Fraxinus sp.).

All reports will be reviewed by our entomologists, and you may be contacted for a site visit if a follow-up is necessary.
