Abstract: Emerald ash borer (Agrilus planipennis Fairmaire), an Asian phloem-feeding pest discovered in 2002, is established across southeast Michigan and parts of southern Ontario. More than 35 outlier populations have been identified in other areas of Michigan, Ohio and Indiana. An estimated 12 to 15 million ash (Fraxinus sp.) trees in urban and forested areas of southeast Michigan have been killed by emerald ash borer (EAB) and all North American ash are threatened by this exotic pest.
