GIBRALTAR – Emerald ash borer has been found in Door County.

State officials say the destructive insect was found last week on private property in the Town of Gibraltar.

Door County is now the 22nd county in the state to be quarantined for EAB.

The quarantine prohibits ash wood products and hardwood firewood from being moved out of the county to areas that are not infested.

The emerald ash borer has destroyed or damaged millions of ash trees since being detected in North America.
