Alternative survey methods for the emerald ash borer
Florida Entomologist 102 (1), 243-245
Abstract: As part of an ongoing project to improve survey and detection for the emerald ash borer, Agrilus planipennis, several field assays were conducted to (1) determine how often traps need to be checked during a given field season, and (2) compare the effectiveness of traps with "dry" (with insecticidal strips or internal funnel) vs. "wet" (with propylene glycol surfactant) collection cups. There were no significant differences among any of the trap check intervals or the trap methods tested. This will provide new tools to surveyors, and allow them more flexibility as they survey for this invasive pest.
