Description: The emerald ash borer (EAB), Agrilus planipennis Fairmaire (Coleoptera: Buprestidae), is an invasive pest of ash trees (Fraxinus spp.) that is rapidly spreading from the probable introduction site in Detroit, Michigan. The rapid spread to areas outside Michigan is undoubtedly due to phoretic transport on nursery stock, logs, and firewood. However, not all the range expansion can be attributed to human agency. Despite attempts to contain the core infestation to the counties surrounding Detroit and Essex County, Ontario, EAB range has continued to expand. This is due in part to the natural dispersal of EAB. Failure to understand the natural dispersal will impede attempts contain and control EAB; knowledge of flight behavior and physiology is needed to estimate dispersal capabilities in order to develop effective containment strategies.
