Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: Ambrosia beetles are increasingly prominent pests of trees in the U.S. Most species, particularly native, are harmless, but some exotic species are detrimental to nurseries, forest, and stored timber. Managing them remains challenging. However, it is not all doom and gloom. The increasing research effort is starting to deliver management solutions. Below are several examples of successful research projects on emerging ambrosia beetle pests. Many others exist.
