Don Eggen, director of the Office of Forest Pest Management for the Pennsylvania Bureau of Forestry, says checkpoints at the Mackinac Bridge -- the route connecting the peninsulas -- may have prevented infestation by preventing transport of infested firewood, one of the chief culprits in the migration of borers and other pests.
Indeed, one of Pennsylvania's most vigorous public relations efforts at the moment is spreading the word on the dangers of firewood hauling.

"Spraying helps contain the widespread gypsy moth damage we have seen in the past, but the major controlling factor is, and will continue to be, the prevalence of a gypsy moth fungus in our woodlands," said Donald Eggen, forest health manager with the Pennsylvania Bureau of Forestry.

"We especially are targeting out-of-state deer hunters who may be coming from Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Maryland and Virginia, and the Canadian Province of Ontario because that's where the emerald ash borer -- a forest pest that could prove deadly to our ash trees -- has been discovered," said Dr. Donald A. Eggen, chief of DCNR's Forest Pest Management Division.
The spread of emerald ash borer and other threatening insects has been linked to the transportation of infested firewood and nursery stock, Eggen said.Usually visible from May to August, the adult emerald ash borer beetles are slightly less than one inch long, thin and bright metallic green in color.The beetle, which feeds in the tissues under the bark of ash trees, has claimed some 7 million trees in Michigan alone.
"We know hunters from those already infected areas may not hear our warning, so we're hoping their Pennsylvania hunting companions who share camps or cabins will tell them, 'Leave the firewood at home; buy it or cut it locally,'" said Eggen.
