Description: In June 2002, emerald ash borer (EAB), Agrilus planipennis Fairmaire, a buprestid native to several Asian countries, was identified as the causative agent of ash (Fraxinus spp.) mortality in southeastern Michigan and southwestern Ontario. Currently, the only method known to control EAB is limited to identifying and destroying infested trees. Conventional insecticides, when identified, will be broadly toxic, expensive, and may require handling by licensed applicators, making their widespread use in parks, woodlots, forests, wetlands, and riparian areas unlikely. Public acceptance remains high for microbial insecticides formulated with Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) and Beauveria bassiana due to good safety records and compatibility with other management strategies, including biocontrol.
