DescriptionThe emerald ash borer (EAB), Agrilus planipennis Fairmaire (Coleoptera: Buprestidae), is native to several countries in Asia (e.g., China, Korea, and Japan). EAB was discovered in Michigan and Ontario in 2002, and then in Ohio, Maryland, and Virginia in 2003. As of November 2003, EAB has only been found to infest ash (Fraxinus) trees in North America, although other hardwoods (e.g., Juglans, Pterocarya, Ulmus) are listed as hosts in Korea and Japan. EAB is spreading naturally through adult flight as well as artificially through movement of infested ash nursery stock, logs, and firewood.
