The Biology and Ecology of the Emerald Ash Borer, Agrilus planipennis, in China
The biology, ecology, and life cycle of the emerald ash borer, Agrilus planipennis Fairmaire, were studied using regular inspection in the forest and observations in the laboratory, and preliminary suggestions for its integrated management are proposed.
Mass rearing and augmentative releases of the native parasitoid Chouioia cunea for biological control of the introduced fall webworm Hyphantria cunea in China
Successful releases of H. cunea pupae indicate that an introduced pest species can also be controlled by the mass-rearing and release of native parasitoids in the country of introduction.
Biology and Behavior of Spathius agrili, a Parasitoid of the Emerald Ash Borer, Agrilus planipennis, in China
It is shown that S. agrili is a promising agent for biocontrol of A. planipennis, a recently described species of pest and parasitoid native to China.
Sensilla on the antennae, legs and ovipositor of Spathius agrili Yang (Hymenoptera: Braconidae), a parasitoid of the emerald ash borer Agrilus planipennis Fairmaire (Coleoptera: Buprestidae)
The findings suggest that the main function of sensilla on the antennae is olfaction, while the sensillas on legs and ovipositor sheaths are mechanoreceptors and tactile sensors.
Trade‐offs in parasitism efficiency and brood size mediate parasitoid coexistence, with implications for biological control of the invasive emerald ash borer
It is found that coexistence between parasitoids can be mediated by trade-offs in their parasitism efficiency and brood sizes, and the differences in life-history traits of natural enemies could be used to select among biological control agents being considered for releases.
