I am not sure what the insects are, but I don't not believe they are Emerald Ash Borers. Based on the Michigan State University Extension website, the description of the Emerald Ash Borer is:
Adults are roughly 3/8 to 5/8 inch long with metallic green wing covers, (also looks like tinted with purple on the edge of the wing cases), and a coppery red or purple abdomen.
The insects in Sasha's photos have a bright yellow color on their back and/or bottom.
