Does Killing the Ash Borer Hurt the Honey Bees?
We've all been concerned about the ash trees in the area and the infiltration of the emerald ash borer.
The city and area arborists are treating ash trees to keep the pesky insect from destroying them. The question is what chemical is being used?
A listener to Rochester's Good Morning called that question in to City Council President Randy Staver Tuesday on Newstalk 1340 KROC AM.

A great question! And thanks for listening Paul Widman!
