    Successful management and mitigation of any invasive pest species depends on early detection tools. The emerald ash borer (EAB) (Argilus planipennis Fairmaire) (Coleoptera: Buprestidae) has already gained a substantial foothold in eastern North America and is having a profound effect on the region's ash-dominated forests. A native ground-nesting wasp, Cerceris fumipennis Say (Hymenoptera: Crabronidae), could prove to be a practical solution for this EAB detection problem.
