Deborah McCullough of Michigan State University’s Department of Entomology describes the national impact of the Emerald Ash Borer. The Emerald Ash Borer has become the most destructive forest pest to impact North America both in regard to forest health and economic impacts.
Jonathan Lelito (USDA APHIS PPQ) also describes the emerging national biological control program currently being undertaken by USDA APHIS. ASETS researchers are currently funded to work on aspects of both the management of ash mortality and the biological control of this forest pest. Visit our project profiles of both SLAM (Slowing Ash Mortality) and MapBioControl.
