FOND DU LAC - Fond du Lac officials are using yellow ribbons to draw attention to a green-colored bug.
Workers have placed the ribbons on trees along Merrill Ave. and Macy St. to promote awareness of the emerald ash borer. Although the trees are not necessarily scheduled to be removed, city leaders say the trees will likely be dead within a few years if they are left untreated.
The emerald ash borer is an insect whose larvae eat holes through ash trees, eventually killing the trees. The insect was recently found at Mauthe Lake campground, which is in the Kettle Moraine State Forest, 15 miles from Fond du Lac. The insect could already be in the city, officials warn.
City officials are also encouraging residents to attend a DNR informational meeting set for 4:30 p.m. Oct. 28 in the legislative chambers of the City/County Government Center, 160 S. Macy St.
