Title: SLAM: A multi-agency pilot project to SL.ow A.sh M.ortality caused by emerald ash borer in outlier sites

Author: Poland, Therese M.; McCullough, Deborah G.;

Date: 2010

Source: Newsletter of the Michigan Entomological Society. 55(1&2): 4-8.

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Since its discovery in southeast Michigan in 2002, the emerald ash borer, Agrilus planipennis Fairmaire (Coleoptera: Buprestidae), has continued to spread and kill ash (Fraxinus) trees at an alarming rate. As of February 2010, EAB has killed tens of millions of ash trees in Michigan, at least 12 additional U.S. states, and the Canadian provinces of Ontario and Quebec. Early efforts to eradicate isolated infestations were expensive and generally unsuccessful. While federal quarantine regulations minimize long-range artificial movement of ash, they do little to reduce natural dispersal of EAB, population build up, and the resulting local progression of ash mortality.
