INVASIVE PEST: Emerald Ash Borer Hits 6th County
The Iowa Department of Natural Resources says the invasive emerald ash borer is now in another Iowa county.
The pest has now been found in Black Hawk County bringing the number of counties affected to six.

It’s considered to be one of the most destructive tree pests in North America.
