The emerald ash borer (EAB), Agrilus planipennis Fairmaire (Coleoptera: Buprestidae), is a recently discovered exotic forest insect pest that has the potential to devastate ash trees throughout North America. Monitoring and detection tools are needed to determine the extent of the infested area and to detect new infestations. We identified ash volatiles that elicit antennal responses by adult EAB and tested them in laboratory olfactometer bioassays. Potential attractants were then tested in field trapping experiments.
