  author={Melody A. Keena},
Abstract Reproductive traits and longevity of Anoplophora glabripennis (Motschulsky) from the Ravenswood, Chicago, IL, and Bayside, Queens, NY, populations were compared for first-generation adults that emerged from cut infested wood and for second-generation adults that were reared on artificial diet. Illinois females were significantly more fecund than those from New York when they emerged from infested wood and tended to be more fecund when reared on artificial diet. Weights of adult females… 

Pourable Artificial Diet for Rearing Anoplophora glabripennis (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) and Methods to Optimize Larval Survival and Synchronize Development

Overall survival increased as the developmental time period before chill increased and the effects of temperature on development is needed to better understand the triggers for pupation and to predict the timing of various stages.

Comparison of fecundity and longevity of Anoplophora malasiaca (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) adults fed on three different host‐plants

Oocyte development, age at first reproduction, ovipositing activity and longevity were compared among three groups of Anoplophora malasiaca female adults and it was concluded that MO was the most suitable adult host‐plant, followed by WI and BB.

Effects of Temperature on Anoplophora glabripennis (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) Adult Survival, Reproduction, and Egg Hatch

Summer temperatures throughout most of the lower 48 United States should support beetle survival and reproduction, although oviposition may be suspended and adult survivorship would decline when summer temperatures are sustained for full a day or more at or above 30°C, and there are no cooler locations where the beetles can retreat.

Tree colonization by the Asian longhorn beetle, Anoplophora glabripennis (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae): effect of habitat and tree suitability

Compensatory feeding is suggested as a potential mechanism that might explain why tree suitability or habitat selection of invasive wood‐borer beetles is peculiar, supported by a more intensive feeding activity recorded on trees in the forest.

Oviposition Preference and Larval Performance of Anoplophora glabripennis (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) in Four Eastern North American Hardwood Tree Species

Although larval establishment was poor in green ash and larval growth may have been retarded in red oak, larvae did survive and grow in both species and it is suggested that all four tree species may be suitable hosts for A. glabripennis.

Reproductive Traits of Glenea cantor (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae: Lamiinae)

ABSTRACT Glenea cantor (F.) is a cerambycid species that attacks living trees of at least seven plant families in Asia, and has the potential to become an invasive pest. Here we investigated its

Reproductive traits and number of matings in males and females of Cerambyx welensii (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) an emergent pest of oaks

Assessment of the reproductive biology of C. welensii in order to prevent or mitigate its impact in dehesa woodlands and other oak forests finds that long-lived males mated more times because they had more mating chances.

Effects of Body Size, Diet, and Mating on the Fecundity and Longevity of the Goldspotted Oak Borer (Coleoptera: Buprestidae)

There was no correlation between adult body size and lifetime oviposition, days to initial ovipposition, larval emergence, and adult longevity, but hind tibia length was marginally correlated with total Oviposition period.

Reproductive Behaviors of Anoplophora glabripennis (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) in the Laboratory

A single pair-bond was sufficient for the female to achieve ∼60% fertility for her lifetime, but female fecundity declined with age at mating, and under eradication conditions, mates will become more difficult to find and females that find mates will likely produce fewer progeny because they will be older at the time of mating.

Oviposition preference of Anoplophora glabripennis emerging from five host tree species under field conditions

Results showed that adult A. glabripennis emerging from the five host tree species did not show any clear oviposition preference for their larval host Tree species in the field but they did present the most obvious preference for AN and the lowest preference for PA.



Seasonal Effect on Reproductive Performance of Monochamus carolinensis (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) Reared in Pine Logs

It is hypothesized that seasonal differences in the nutritional quality of logs caused the observed differences in M. carolinensis survival and reproduction, as the nutritional value of phloem and cambium tissue of pines is highest during the spring months.

Potential Effect of Anoplophora glabripennis (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) on Urban Trees in the United States

Anoplophora glabripennis Motschulsky, a wood borer native to Asia, was recently found in New York City and Chicago, and the potential effects on urban resources through time are estimated.

Effects of Japanese cedar inner bark nutritional quality on development of Semanotus japonicus (Coleoptera : Cerambycidae)

Results suggest that enhanced nutritional conditions in the inner bark of logs can positively affect borer development.

Nutritional Ecology of Wood-Feeing Coleoptrea Lepidoptera and Hymenoptera

Woody tissues are produced by each of the approximately 44,000 species of trees, shrubs, and woody vines found worldwide and many insects have evolved to live and feed in woody environments; some species inhabit the relatively soft and nutritionally rich inner bark, whereas others are found in the harder more nutrient-deficient sapwood and heartwood.


The results showed that the fecundity was in-fluenced by the species of the host trees infested and the tactic orientation of the male beerle at long distance toward the female beetle was mediated by the secretion of sex pheromone of the latter.

Be on the lookout for Asian longhorned beetles

In New York City and Chicago, ALB is most often found in maples (Acer spp.), reflecting both a preferences for maples as well as the fact that maples are the most common urban trees in both cities.

New York's battle with the Asian long-horned beetle

A wide variety of organisms are unintentionally transported from country to country each year, primarily as a result of world trade. Practically all classes of plants and animals can be stowaways.
