E1634 summarizes biology and life cycle, how to identify adult and larva, hosts, damage, monitoring (trapping), cultural control, plant resistance, biological control and insecticide control for homeowner and professional. E1604 has photographs of other common insects that mimic EAB in appearance with metallic green coloration and elongated, compact bullet-shaped bodies. With EAB being detected recently in Winnipeg, Canada and Sioux Falls, South Dakota, these invasive and destructive insect pests are getting closer to North Dakota. It is very important for everyone to be vigilant for EAB and symptoms of EAB in ash trees.

Printing support for E1634 was provided by the USDA Forest Service State and Private Forestry Program, and for E1604 by the Great Plains Diagnostic Network grant from a subcontract under the USDA-NIFA.
