The emerald ash borer (Agrilus planipennis) is a tiny insect that measures only 3/8 to 1/2 inch in length and 1/16 inch in width. These borers typically emerge from under the bark of ash trees between late May and mid-July, leaving behind a distinctive D-shaped exit hole after chewing their way out. Finding the emerald ash borer eggs is a challenging task, as they are only about 1 mm in size and rarely visible to the naked eye.
