State begins hunt for ash borers

The Minnesota Agriculture Department begins hanging 6,500 emerald ash borer traps statewide within days.

The three-paneled purple traps will be hung in trees in areas thought to be high-risk for the destructive insect. When borers are found, state scientists know where they need to act.

The borers have destroyed thousands of trees and are found in several parts of the state.
