    Description

    In June 2002, the emerald ash borer (EAB), Agrilus planipennis Fairmaire (Coleoptera: Buprestidae), native to several Asian countries, was identified as the cause of ash (Fraxinus spp.) mortality in greater than 2,500 square miles of southeastern Michigan and southwestern Ontario; more recent infestations were found in Ohio, Maryland, and Virginia in 2003. Federal and state agencies adopted a strategy of EAB eradication in North America. Should eradication fail, EAB management will require augmentation of existing natural enemies or introduction of EAB natural enemies from Asia. The only literature known for EAB is from China, where EAB is a sporadic pest of ash (Yu 1992); a braconid parasitoid, Spathius sp. (Hymenoptera: Braconidae), was recently reported from EAB in Tianjin Province in an ash plantation (Xu Gongtian 2003).
