Abstract

The emerald ash borer (EAB, Agrilus planipennis Fairmaire) has killed hundreds of millions of ash trees since it was discovered near Detroit, Michigan and Windsor, Ontario in 2002 (www.emeraldashborer. info 2016) and continues to spread in North America. Canadian and U.S. federal, provincial, and state regulatory agencies have used artificial traps and lures in surveys to detect new infestations since 2008. Traps used in detection surveys have evolved over the years, and several different trap designs and lures have been tested in research studies.
