Emerald Ash Borer Program Manual

The Emerald Ash Borer Program Manual contains information to guide a management program for the emerald ash borer (EAB) beetle, Agrilus planipennis (Fairmaire), (Coleoptera: Buprestidae). The guidelines are intended to assist Plant Protection and Quarantine field operations and states in implementing specific action plans to manage infestations and prevent the spread of EAB to other locations. This information provides strategies for detection and response to an infestation of EAB by presenting available information for implementing general and delimiting surveys, identification, regulatory, management, or containment procedures. Specific program activity should be based on information available at that time. Plant Protection and Quarantine (PPQ) develops guidelines through discussion, consultation, or agreement with other Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) staff, State Plant Regulatory Officials (SPRO), U.S. Forest Service, tribal governments, and other state and federal agencies and cooperators directly involved in EAB management.
