Detection of Emerald Ash Borer

  • Using Double-Decker Traps to Detect Emerald Ash Borer pdf (PDF, 496KB)
    April 2009
    Deborah G. McCullough and Therese Poland - Detecting or monitoring populations of emerald ash borer (Agrilus planipennis Fairmaire) is very difficult when infestations are relatively new or when densities of this invasive pest are low. The Double-Decker (DD) trap is designed to integrate several visual and olfactory cues that are likely to attract EAB beetles. The DD traps are designed to be highly apparent to beetles. The vertical silhouette of the DD trap somewhat mimics the silhouette of an open-grown tree. The trap includes two purple panels, partly because beetles respond positively to that particular shade of purple. The two panels help to mimic the shape of a tree "canopy." In addition, they increase the surface area available for trapping beetles.
