Leading the fight against Emerald Ash Borer, researchers update report on insecticide options


A new report by entomologists studying EAB indicates that effective measures can be taken to slow EAB’s spread and preserve desirable ash trees. Co-written by several university researchers, Insecticide Options for Protecting Ash Trees from Emerald Ash Borer (2014) provides a status update on ongoing scientific research conducted to evaluate chemical treatments used to kill EAB. Additional report co-authors include David R. Smitley, Ph.D. Michigan State University, Clifford S. Sadof, Ph.D., Purdue University and Whitney Cranshaw, Ph.D., Colorado State University.
