Q.

ash borer

Zone montreal quebec | Anonymous added on July 20, 2016 | Answered

My ash tree was treated for ash borer and now I am seeing larvae on our cedar deck near where the tree is. It seems the larvae are moving out from the tree. How do I kill these larvae or stop their spread before they make nests in my decking? I also have a puppy, so I want to have you know that too in case of a recommended pesticide or is she eats one. Thank you!

There is a lot of research being done to control the Emerald Ash Borer.
I would contact the nearest Agriculture office near you to report an infestation.
Here are some links for you.
