Emerald Ash Borer Traps

I have been seeing these purple triangles hanging all over Connecticut and I finally found out what they are. The are sticky traps to catch bugs put out by the EAB Trapping Program. What they are looking for is the Emerald Ash Borer. I believe they are not in Connecticut yet, but they are on the look out for them.

A trap hung up high.

These labels are attached to the rope holding the trap letting people know what they are.

Thank you! We have been seeing them all over CT and were wondering, too. They are almost artistic and whimiscal...kind of unexpected against the green foliage!
