Native parasitoids of the emerald ash borer have been recorded at low levels--less than 1%--in several studies. One of these, Atanycolus sp, has recently become abundant (parasitism exceeding 20%) at several Michigan sites. In 2007-2008, we conducted studies to characterize the distribution, life cycle, phenology, and population trends for Atanycolus parasitizing emerald ash borer in Michigan.
