Abstract

In 2006, we tested host selection and feeding preference of the emerald ash borer (EAB) on four species of ash species (green, black, white, and blue ash) that are native to North America but exotic to the beetle. For comparison, we also included Manchurian ash (which is native to the beetle) and European ash (which is exotic to the beetle) in the test. Beetles were given a choice among the six species of foliage.
