Georgia Department of Natural Resources officials say an invasive insect that's killed millions of trees in 20 states has been found in Georgia. Officials said Tuesday that the Georgia Invasive Species Task Force is working to block the spread of emerald ash borer beetles, which were trapped during routine monitoring last month in DeKalb County.
State forestry officials are trying to stop tree killing pests from entering Georgia. Gypsy Moths and Emerald Ash Borers are within 100 miles of the state line. Many come on firewood from other states.
