Description: Tremendous numbers of infested ash trees are being removed for control and ultimate eradication of the exotic emerald ash borer (EAB), Agrilus planipennis Fairmaire (Coleoptera: Buprestidae) which was discovered in southeastern Michigan and Windsor, Ontario in 2002. Quarantine regulations have been imposed which restrict movement of all life stages of the beetle in ash trees, limbs or cut firewood, ash logs and untreated ash lumber with bark attached, uncomposted ash wood chips and bark chips larger than one inch in diameter, and any other articles determined to present a risk. The greatest threat to the success of the eradication plan is artificial spread of EAB as a result of improper disposal or movement of infested material.
