Emerald Ash Borer Beetle Early detection of EAB in newly infested trees can prove very difficult, particularly for the lay property or woodland owner as the trees tend to exhibit few, if any, visible external symptoms of infestation. One of the first noticeable signs of infestation is often the presence of unusually abundant uneven holes drilled by woodpeckers as they feed on prepupal larvae [note: this symptom is not exclusive to EAB infestation].
