(The following information is modified from a Minnesota Department of Agriculture news release).
The Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA) is issuing an emergency quarantine for the southeastern portion of St. Louis County (see below map) after confirming a second emerald ash borer (EAB) detection within the city of Duluth. EAB was found in Superior, Wisconsin across Lake Superior from Duluth in August, 2013. It was first found in Duluth in October, 2015 on Park Pointe; the quarantine at that time was restricted to only this island.
