Checking Stored Grain
Finally, some springlike temperatures!!! I think we’ve all been anxiously awaiting the return of spring, I know I have, but it’s important to remember an easily overlooked springtime activity. If you have grain stored in bins on the farm, these temperatures also start to warm the grain. However, it will warm grain closest to the bin walls first, particularly on the south and west sides of the bin.

But it amazes me that everyone who finds a hole in the bark on their tree is sure they have EAB... even if the holes are in the bark of something other than an ash tree!
