Tree Killing Beetle Found

Dec 11, 2012

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources says a beetle that threatens walnut trees has been found in Southwest Ohio.

Walnut tree products have been quarantined in Butler County after the discovery of Walnut Twig Beetles, which carry an incurable fungus that kills the trees. Eight beetles were found in traps set at a wood processing business in Butler County. No infested trees have been found.
