Ohio ALB Eradication Program

ALB was first found in Ohio in June 2011. The Ohio Department of Agriculture (ODA) enacted a quarantine for the State, establishing the initial regulated area within Tate Township on June 20, 2011. Due to additional detections of ALB infested trees, the regulated area was expanded to include Monroe and Stonelick/Batavia Townships. APHIS first issued a Federal Order that mirrors the regulated boundaries of the State on July 13, 2011. In Ohio, the ODA and APHIS work together to operate the ALB eradication program.
