DescriptionIn 2007, we continued to evaluate two neo-nicotinoid insecticides, imidacloprid and dinotefuron, applied as non-invasive trunk sprays to control emerald ash borer (EAB), Agrilus planipennis Fairmaire. Neo-nicotinoid products are widely used to protect landscape ash trees because they are relatively safe for humans and non-target species. These systemic products generally applied annually to the soil or via trunk injection and the insecticide is translocated to the canopy. Adult EAB, which must feed on ash leaves for at least two weeks and often longer before oviposition occurs, encounter the insecticide in the foliage.
