Description: The emerald ash borer (EAB), Agrilus planipennis, a buprestid beetle native to northeast Asia, was determined as the cause of ash tree (Fraxinus spp.) mortality in areas of southern Michigan and Ontario in 2002. Infestations have since been found in Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Wisconsin, Missouri, and Quebec. Regulatory agencies recently shifted their policy from eradication to management for this pest in North America. Classical biological control with three EAB natural enemies from China is being evaluated for use in the sustained control of EAB in the U.S.
