Emerald Ash Borer confirmed in Grand Isle County

SOUTH HERO, Vt. (WCAX) An invasive insect has now been found in Grand Isle County.

Late Wednesday afternoon, state officials announced Emerald Ash Borer larvae were collected from ash trees in South Hero. It's about 50 miles from the closest confirmed infestation in Vermont.

Officials say an infestation there could mean parts of Chittenden or Franklin Counties also have the bug too.
