    Description

    The emerald ash borer (EAB) (Agrilus planipennis), a buprestid native to Asia that feeds on ash trees (Fraxinus spp.), was discovered in southeast Michigan and nearby Ontario in 2002. It apparently arrived in the 1990's via infested solid-wood packing materials from China. As of 2011, areas considered generally infested with EAB in North America include Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, and Ontario, Canada. Additionally, infestations are known in Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, Minnesota, Missouri, New York, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Quebec, Canada (www.emeraldashborer.info). Since 2002, we have been studying biological and microbial controls for management of EAB in forested ecosystems of North America.
