The Canadian Food Inspection Agency confirmed the presence of the emerald ash borer (EAB) in Frontenac County.

The emerald ash borer was discovered at a private campground near the town of Mountain Grove.

Movement restrictions have been placed on all ash materials, such as logs, branches and wood chips. Property owners in the affected area have been notified of these restrictions.

The presence of EAB has now been confirmed in 27 Ontario counties, and in three areas in the province of Quebec. EAB is established in several areas of Canada and can spread rapidly if it is moved by people.
