    ..These detection rates were reduced to 80, 63, 55, and 46%, respectively, at low emerald ash borer density sites...

    J Econ Entomol 106:2415-23. 2013
    ..Trap catch was not affected by diluting the fluon concentration applied to traps to 50% (1:1 mixture in water). At 10%, trap catch was significantly lowered...

    J Econ Entomol 101:1831-7. 2008
    ..Traps placed in the mid-canopy of ash trees (13 m) caught significantly more beetles than those placed at ground level. We also describe a new trap design, a three-sided prism trap, which is relatively easy to assemble and deploy...

    J Econ Entomol 104:901-8. 2011
    ..In a separate assay, there was no significant difference detected between glue-coated traps and Rain-X (normally a glass treatment)-coated traps, but both caught significantly more A. planipennis adults than untreated traps...

    J Econ Entomol 102:2160-9. 2009
