Abstract

To date, use of girdled trap trees remain the most effective method employed by regulatory and resource management agencies for detecting low-density populations of emerald ash borer (EAB), Agrilus planipennis Fairmaire. Locating suitable trees can be difficult, and felling and debarking trap trees is expensive. Alternative options for EAB detection could include enhancing the attraction of adult EAB to ash trees without requiring destruction of the trees.
