DescriptionThe emerald ash borer (EAB), Agrilus planipennis Fairmaire (Coleoptera: Buprestidae), a sporadic wood-boring pest native to northeastern Asia, was found attacking ash trees (Fraxinus spp.) in southeastern Michigan in 2002. Despite regulatory efforts to quarantine and eradicate EAB, this invasive beetle has continued to spread throughout Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, and Ontario, Canada, and caused the death of millions of ash trees. Infestations have also been found in Illinois, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia. EAB adversely impacts our forest biodiversity, ash resources, and urban areas as ash species are widely distributed in forested ecosystems and planted as shade trees and ornamentals. While eradication may be a viable option for small, outlier infestations, effective and environmentally sound management measures are clearly needed for containment and suppression of dense EAB populations over large areas to help protect our ash resources in other areas in North America.
