Information regarding Emerald Ash Borer:

Wasps released to control ash borer. A tiny wasp was released in Evanston, Illinois this summer (2009) that may help control damage from the emerald ash borer.  The wasp lays its eggs in the eggs of the ash borer. The tiny wasp larvae then hatch inside the borer's egg and eat it from the inside out.  The wasps are specialized to prey only on ash borers; they pose no danger to animals and humans.  Initial releases are in urban environments.  Reportedly there have been encouraging tests in Michigan.


Insecticides for ash borer are described in a new bulletin that "provides the most up-to-date information and research on if, when, and how to treat ash trees." Find more information on:
