Lately, studies have shown that the active ingredient in Manuka honey is Methylglyoxal [18,19], and this com- pound is known to have synergistic effect with some anti-biotics such as piperacillin [20]. Emerald Ash Borer is known to infest all species of ash (Fraxinus spp.). It has killed more than 40 million ash trees in the states of Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Maryland, and Illinois. Andrea C. Anulewicz1, Deborah G. McCullough1, Therese M. Poland2, and David L. Cappaert1 1Department of Entomology, Michigan … Detection of Emerald Ash Borer Infestations in Living Green Ash by Noninvasive Electronic-Nose Analysis of Wood Volatiles. Ash trees in Bucks and Montgomery counties are safe.For now.The state Department of Agriculture, which set up traps and surveyed the area this summer, found no trace of the emerald ash borer… In: Mastro, Victor; Lance, David; Reardon, Richard; Parra, Gregory, comps. EAB was recently discovered to have expanded its host … Its larvae are generalist feeders, boring into the wood of a wide variety of trees, native and introduced. "The purple panel … In 2010 we monitored emerald ash borer attraction to dark green traps baited with six lure combinations of 80/20 (manuka/phoebe), manuka oil, and (3Z)-hexenol. When citrus orchards were first established in New Zealand, this beetle started inflicting serious damage, and so gained the name "lemon tree borer". Attraction of emerald ash borer to trap trees: can Meja or Manuka oil compete with girdling?. The new traps will be baited with manuka oil and glue to detect emerald ash borers (EAB). See Table 1. Manuka oil lures from 2008 were more attractive to X. glabratus than controls for 8 wk, whereas lures from 2012 were attractive for only 2 wk. Biosensors, Vol. Differential response of male and female emerald ash borers (Col., Buprestidae) to (Z)-3-hexenol and manuka oil. Manuka oil only contained four of the volatiles that evoked antennal response suggesting the suggesting the absent compounds are relatively important signals for Emerald Ash Borers. The lemon tree borer (Oemona hirta), also known as the whistling beetle or the singing beetle, is a longhorn beetle endemic to New Zealand. Manuka oil was shown to be an eff ective lure for Xyleborus glabratus in the southeastern U.S. (Hanula and Sullivan 2008) and for the emerald ash borer (Crook et al. The control treatments were untreated traps with no volatiles. The emerald ash borer (EAB), Agrilus planipennis, is an invasive highly destructive wood-boring insect that attacks ash trees. Temporal analysis of sesquiterpene emissions from manuka and phoebe oil lures and efficacy for attraction of Xyleborus glabratus (Coleoptera: Curculionidae: Scolytinae). For the sticky leaf traps, the shape of the EAB visual decoy lure was found to be important in optimizing the detection rate. The emerald ash borer, Agrilus planipennis Fairmaire (Coleoptera: Buprestidae), is a serious invasive pest of North American ash (Fraxinus spp.) _____Emerald Ash Borer Survey 83 EMERALD ASH BORER AND ASIAN LONGHORNED BEETLE RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT REVIEW MEETING—2006 ATTRACTION OF EMERALD ASH BORER TO TRAP TREES: CAN MEJA OR MANUKA OIL COMPETE WITH GIRDLING? "These traps won't attract new EAB infestations. Emerald ash borer established recently in North America as a serious invasive insect species that destroys a variety of ash trees. It is also considered a possible threat in Hawaii, where it seems to spread more quickly than the related Leptospermum laevigatum (Starr et al., 2003). In South Africa, the species is listed as ‘under surveillance’ in the Conservation of Agricultural Resources Act 1983. It was detected for the first time in Pennsylvania in late June 2007. The lemon tree borer (Oemona hirta), also known as the whistling beetle or the singing beetle, is a longhorn beetle endemic to New Zealand. The traps, which are hanging in trees throughout Indiana, are lined with glue and baited with manuka oil, which attracts nearby emerald ash borers (EAB). We conducted two trapping experiments in green ash plantations in Ontario, Canada to compare the response of the emerald ash borer (EAB), Agrilus planipennis, to (Z)‐3‐hexenol (Z3‐6:OH) and manuka oil. Farm Forestry - Headlines. Previous findings reveal that specific cues are not well understood for this species. 74 Emerald Ash Borer Survey _____ Indiana and Ohio. Both the sticky leaf traps and prism traps captured more EAB when a point source of plant odours, either manuka or phoebe oil, was deployed with the trap. 4, p. 123. Between eight and ten potential survey tools (treatments) were tested at each site. 9, Issue. The emerald ash borer, (Agrilus planipennis) (EAB), is an exotic, ... Forty traps were baited with Manuka oil lures, 30 with leaf blend lures, and 78 with no lure. that has caused devastating mortality since it was first identified in North America in 2002. ORIGINAL CONTRIBUTION Visual and chemical cues affecting the detection rate of the emerald ash borer in sticky traps M. J. Domingue1, J. P. Lelito1, I. Fraser2, V. C. Mastro3, J. H. Tumlinson1 & T. C. Baker1 1 Department of Entomology, Center for Chemical Ecology, The … Redbay ambrosia beetle, Xyleborus glabratus Eichhoff, is a native of Southeast Asia recently established in coastal forests of Georgia, SC and Florida. Abstract. Manuka honey has previously been reported to inhibit many bacterial pathogens, including methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, and is successfully utilized in both clinical and veterinary practice. Goldspotted oak borer prefers traps baited with Manuka oil, Phoebe oil, or (3Z)-hexenol in contrast to no bait (Coleman et al., 2014). Blue Ash (Fraxinus quadrangulata) is the least susceptible of all ash species, but is not commonly found in Massachusetts. Its larvae are generalist feeders, boring into the wood of a wide variety of trees, native and introduced. The scent of manuka oil, harvested from native tea trees in New Zealand, will attract adult beetles. When citrus orchards were first established in New Zealand, this beetle started inflicting serious damage, and so gained the name "lemon tree borer". It vectors a wilt fungus, Raffaelea sp., lethal to redbay trees, Persea borbonia L. Spreng, and certain other Lauraceae. Emerald ash borer and Asian longhorhed beetle research and development review meeting; 2006 October 29-November 2; Cincinnatti, OH. "This is exactly why Indiana participates in the EAB trapping program," said Purdue University entomologist Jodie Ellis. Manuka is grown as an ornamental garden plant in many countries, with cultivars widely available. This lure mimics chemicals emitted by stressed ash trees, which may make the traps more effective in detecting the emerald ash borer at low population levels. Table 1. Manuka oil is the steam distilled oil from the leaves of Leptospermum scoparium (J. R. et G. WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. _____Emerald Ash Borer survey 73 Em E rald ash Bo r E r rE s E arch a n d dE v E lopm E nt rE vi E w mEE ting —2007 douBlE-dECKERs And ToWERs: EmERAld Ash BoRER TRAPs in 2007 deborah g. mcCullough1,2, Therese m.Poland3, Andrea C.

Three wells of 6 mm in diameter were cut into the surface of the agar using a sterile cork borer. At least one beetle was captured on 81% of the purple double-decker traps, 56% of the green double-decker traps, 42% of sticky bands, and 25% of the canopy traps. The new traps will be baited with manuka oil and glue to detect emerald ash borers (EAB). Forest industry says main political parties abandon forest industry Tuesday, October 13, 2020 Forest industry says main political parties abandon forest industry at economic and environmental cost The Labour and National parties’ policies on forestry, leading into the election, are disappointing to forest… Field trapping assays were conducted in 2009 and 2010 throughout western Michigan, to evaluate lures for adult emerald ash borer, A. planipennis Fair Subsequently, 100 µ l [50% v/v in phosphate-buffered saline (PBS)] of the tested honey types, Manuka honey and laboratory-synthesized honey were added separately to each well. A chemical attractant has been needed to monitor populations of emerald ash borer in low infestation areas. Results for a comparative study between the two oils are summarized in the graph below. Manuka honey originates from the Manuka bush (Leptospermum scoparium), an endemic plant grown in New Zealand. Forst.) Bright purple objects resembling box kites will be used to trap emerald ash borers in ash trees throughout the state in preparation for the pest's first emergence in early to mid-May. Manuka Factor that is absent in other types of honey [17]. - . In 2012, we conducted field trapping assays that tested the efficacy of purple prism and fluon-coated green multifunnel (Lindgren funnel) traps. Thirteen beetles were collected on four traps. Kendra PE(1), Niogret J, Montgomery WS, Sanchez JS, Deyrup MA, Pruett GE, Ploetz RC, Epsky ND, Heath RR. The scent of manuka oil, harvested from native tea trees in New Zealand, will attract adult beetles. Several ash tree volatiles were tested on purple prism traps in 2009, and a dark green prism trap in 2010. The traps also contain a blended lure of 80 percent manuka oil (the essential oil extracted from the manuka tree, Leptospermum scoparium) and 20 percent phoebe oil (an extract of Brazilian walnut, Phoebe porosa). FHTET 2007-04. A reader is experiencing problems with borer, which after attacking her citrus tree has now started to spread to other shrubs in the garden. These two oils are distillations of plants and consisting of many sesquiterpenes so it is difficult to determine which compounds are important for host selection. Purple traps baited with Manuka oil and suspended in the canopies of live ash trees captured only 5% of the beetles. Field trapping assays were conducted in 2009 and 2010 throughout western Michigan, to evaluate lures for adult emerald ash borer, A. planipennis Fairmaire (Coleoptera: Buprestidae). They simply help find infestations that are already there," said Jodie Ellis, Purdue University entomologist.
