Quarantined Missouri counties
Where EAB has been found
The first detection of EAB in Missouri was at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' Greenville Recreation Area in Wayne County. On Sept. 3, 2008, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Missouri Department of Agriculture placed Wayne County, Mo., under quarantine for articles related to emerald ash borer (Agrilus planipennis) until further notice. In 2013 all 114 Missouri counties and the City of St. Louis are under quarantine to prevent the accidental spread of the beetle.
As of June 2013, EAB had been found in 20 states and in two Canadian Provinces in North America.
