The Colorado Department of Agriculture released a bulletin this week reminding Coloradans not to move firewood out of Boulder County, where the Emerald Ash Borer has been detected. Moving firewood can spread other pests, too. In our library you can find several resources on the risks of moving firewood:
- Firewood & Pests Recommendations (Colorado Dept. of Agriculture)
- Firewood and House Log Insects (Colorado State University Extension)
- Movement and Use of Firewood in Colorado (Colorado Dept. of Agriculture)
