Emerald Ash Borer: Status, management options and cost calculators
April 8, 2015

Deborah McCullough, Michigan State University

Cliff Sadof, Purdue University

Richard Hauer, University of Wisconsin Stevens Point

Since its discovery in southeast Michigan in the summer of 2002, the emerald ash borer (EAB) has killed millions of trees and has been discovered as far west as Colorado, north as Quebec, and south as Georgia. In this webinar, we present the latest information about the emerald ash borer, including management options and planning tools. Deborah McCullough will provide a summary of EAB impacts and management considerations. She will share information on EAB host preference, resistance of select species, insecticide products, and natural enemies and biological control. Cliff Sadof will provide a brief overview of the Emerald Ash Borer Cost Calculator and Richard Hauer will discuss economic considerations for EAB management, including a description of the Emerald Ash Borer Planning Simulator (EAB-PLANS). Both free tools calculate the costs of a variety of ash removal, replacement, and/or insecticide treatment scenarios based on user inputs.
