The emerald ash borer (EAB), Agrilus planipennis (Coleoptera, Buprestidae), is an invasive pest from Asia posing a serious threat to ash trees (Fraxinus spp.) in North America. Beetles have a 1- or 2-year life cycle completed entirely in association with ash trees. Since its discovery in 2002 near Detroit, MI, EAB has now spread over much of northeastern North America. Within these areas over 25 million trees have been killed.
