Because of the beetle's aggressive movement across Pennsylvania, the restrictions on transporting firewood within the state – initially intended to slow the pest's spread – is now unnecessary.
However, invasive pests such as Gypsy Moths, Asian Longhorned Beetles, Emerald Ash Borers, Sirex Wood Wasps, and Bark Beetles are easily spread when people move infested wood products.
If you purchase locally-grown firewood while at Cooper's Lake, please do not take it back to your home state with you.
