Funder: Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund
Project Partners: University of Minnesota, United States Forest Service
Project Period: 7/1/2013 – 6/30/2017
This project is evaluating a range of detection tools and measuring their ability to detect emerald ash borer (EAB) at different population densities. We are addressing whether these detection tools provide enough information to facilitate direct management of emerald ash borer within urban areas.
We are comparing visual inspection, purple prism traps and branch sampling under a range of emerald ash borer population densities.
