    Description

    The emerald ash borer (EAB), Agrilus planipennis Fairmaire (Buprestidae), a native of Asia, was discovered in the USA and Canada in 2002. Drs. Deborah McCullough (Michigan State University) and Therese Poland (USDA-FS) tested several systemic and topical insecticides for EAB control, which they reported elsewhere. One additional insecticide that we tested was D-20 by Perma Guard (Albuquerque, NM), which is composed of diatomaceous earth and natural pyrethrins (0.2 percent a.i.). The study included 40 newly transplanted green ash trees, 4-5 m tall, which were moved from a nursery in a non EAB-infested area of Michigan to an area that was heavily infested with EAB near Ann Arbor, MI.
