DescriptionThe emerald ash borer (EAB), Agrilus planipennis Fairmaire (Buprestidae), a native of Asia, was first discovered in the United States and Canada in 2002. Within the area that is generally infested with EAB, homeowners and communities are typically either removing infested trees or treating them with various insecticides to protect them from further EAB attack. In addition, questions have arisen as to whether various insecticides will kill within-tree EAB life stages if applied to the bark surface soon before adult emergence is to begin. We report here the results of two studies that tested one systemic insecticide and four topically applied insecticides.
