Outdoor activities are essential to living a healthy lifestyle. Summertime is filled with baseball and softball leagues, community swimming pools, vacations, hiking, camping, fishing, and participating in state fairs. During these exciting times, it is easy to overlook the fact that we are exposing out bodies to harmful UV (ultraviolet) rays from the sun.

The Nebraska Department of Agriculture (NDA) has confirmed that emerald ash borer (EAB) was discovered during a site inspection in Omaha’s Pulaski Park on June 6, 2016. Nebraska becomes the 27th state to confirm the presence of EAB, joining neighboring states of Iowa, Missouri, Kansas and Colorado. The current treatment consideration zone extends from Fort Calhoun to Plattsmouth and from Gretna to east of Council Bluffs (see map, right column). The yearly window of time that is recommended for treating an ash tree is closing. If a tree is treated any time after mid-June the chemical will not distribute throughout the tree as much as it would have earlier in the spring so it would be best to wait until next year.
