Emerald Ash Borer Survives Cold Winter Temperatures

Published on March 5, 2022   EAB Green Ash Ash tree

Emerald ash borer survives Winnipeg's extreme winter weather In a recent study, Emerald Ash Borer has been found to survive in temperatures down to -46 C. This contrasts with earlier studies that indicated high mortality at temperatures in the -25 to -30 range. This has significance for Ash trees in Winnipeg and re-inforces the importance of assessing your ash trees to plan a program of treatment to control EAB or determine which Ash trees might be slated for future removal. Unfortunately, based on other areas of North America, EAB will result in the eventual death of all untreated ash trees.
