E-M:/ Menards - Wood may contain emerald ash borers



 
04/26/07 FROM STAFF REPORTS

Agriculture officials in Minnesota and Wisconsin said Wednesday that Taylors Wood Products firewood sold at Menards and possibly some other stores may contain emerald ash borers, which have killed more than 20 million trees in Michigan.

Officials said consumers should burn the wood immediately, before any larvae transform into beetles.

The two states learned that thousands of bundles of the Taylors firewood came from trees cut in Illinois, which is under a federal quarantine.
