    Description

    Emerald ash borer (Agrilus planipennis Fairmaire), an Asian buprestid discovered in June 2002, has killed an estimated 15 million ash trees (Fraxinus sp.) in southeast Michigan. Larvae feed in serpentine galleries in the phloem, disrupting translocation of water and nutrients. At least 16 Fraxinus species in North America are threatened by this exotic pest. Operational programs to contain emerald ash borer (EAB) populations are under way in Michigan, Ohio and Indiana. Quarantine regulations and public awareness campaigns have been implemented to prevent transport of infested ash firewood, trees, or logs.
