1 The Asian longhorned beetle is native to China and Korea, and was found for the first time outside its native habitat in the U.S.A. in 1996, with subsequent detections being made in Canada and several European countries. 2 We review the taxonomy, distribution, basic biology, behaviour, ecology and management of endemic and exotic Anoplophora glabripennis, including information that is available in the extensive Chinese literature. 3 This species has caused massive mortality of Populus species… 

Asian longhorned beetle (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae), an introduced pest of maple and other hardwood trees in North America and Europe

The most practical approach for eradicating Asian longhorned beetle is to optimize trapping methods using semiochemicals for early detection to eliminate the insect before it spreads over large areas.

Description of an establishment event by the invasive Asian longhorned beetle (Anoplophora glabripennis) in a suburban landscape in the northeastern United States

Tree-ring analyses show that within this establishing population, Asian longhorned beetles initially infested one or two A. rubrum, before moving through the stand to infest additional A.rubrum based not on distance or direction, but on tree size, with infestation biased towards trees with larger trunk diameters.

Predicting Distribution of the Asian Longhorned Beetle, Anoplophora glabripennis (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) and Its Natural Enemies in China

It was found that climate change led to the northward migration of the suitable areas of A. glabripennis and its natural enemies, and natural enemies should be included in the model used for predicting suitable areas for invasive pests.

Life history of the Asian longhorn beetle Anoplophora glabripennis (Coleoptera Cerambycidae) in southern Europe

To determine its seasonal phenology, adult beetle longevity, density of successful emergence, infestation age and overwintering life history, field and laboratory studies were conducted on an A. glabripennis infestation in Northern Italy from 2010 to 2012.

Colonization of Three Maple Species by Asian Longhorned Beetle, Anoplophora glabripennis, in Two Mixed-Hardwood Forest Stands

Overall, ALB was more successful in A. rubrum, where adults emerged from 53% and 64% of trees in each stand, compared to A. platanoides or A. saccharum, which had the earliest signs of attack that occurred in 2006 and was colonized shortly thereafter.

Chemical Ecology of the Asian Longhorn Beetle, Anoplophora glabripennis

The current progress in ALB chemical ecology including host selection and location, pheromone identification, trapping techniques, olfactory system, and related biology and behavior is summarized, and a potentially important role of some host-original chemicals, such as sesquiterpenes, inALB host and mate location is highlighted.

Host preference and host colonization of the Asian long-horned beetle, Anoplophora glabripennis (Coleoptera Cerambycidae), in Southern Europe

Overall, results from this study confirm that host species affects both beetle colonization and breeding performance and shows ALB host preference and host suitability varying between tree species, suggesting an ALB acceptance even of sub-optimal hosts.

Managing invasive populations of Asian longhorned beetle and citrus longhorned beetle: a worldwide perspective.

Taxonomy, diagnostics, native range, bionomics, damage, host plants, pest status in theirnative range, invasion history and management, recent research, and international efforts to prevent new introductions are discussed.

History and development of an isolated outbreak of Asian longhorn beetle Anoplophora glabripennis (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) in southern England

Tree ring analysis of infested stems and branches showed that the first A. glabripennis adult emerged in 2003 and that the beetle had been present for approximately 10 years before it was discovered, but the population had increased relatively slowly and, even though it could be shown that some beetles travelled 96–203 m to lay eggs in new trees, the population as a whole had not spread further than 234‬m.

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.



Distribution and Abundance of Anoplophora glabripennis (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) in Natural Acer Stands in South Korea

It is hypothesize that the varying dynamics of A. glabripennis populations across its geographical range may be explained by considering it as an “edge specialist,” which evolved in riparian habitats.

Host tree resistance against the polyphagous

Golden-rain tree and callery pear are present in the native range of A. glabripennis and may have developed resistance to the beetle by virtue of exposure to attack during their evolutionary history, and may include compounds that are toxic or otherwise interfere with normal growth and development of the beetle.

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.

Potential Geographic Distribution of Anoplophora glabripennis (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) in North America

Abstract The potential for ecological and economic damage caused by invasive species is only beginning to be appreciated. A recently arrived, and particularly worrisome, invader in North America is

Field studies of control of Anoplophora glabripennis (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) using fiber bands containing the entomopathogenic fungi Metarhizium anisopliae and Beauveria brongniartii

Replicated field trials were conducted in Anhui, China to compare Biolisa Kamikiri with similarly prepared bands containing Metarhizium anisopliae for control of A. glabripennis, a tree-killing invasive insect that has long been a major pest in China.

Methods for Rearing the Asian Longhorned Beetle (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) on Artificial Diet

Compared larval growth and adult parameters using three artificial diets developed in China for A. glabripennis and two developed for other members of the Lamiini, it is found that nondiapausing larvae reared on Monochamus carolinensis (Olivier) diet needed less time to pupate than nondi Papausing larvae on A.glabrip Dennis diet.

Dispersal of Anoplophora glabripennis (Cerambycidae)

Data analysis of the first year study of population dispersal of Anoplophora glabripennis in Gansu Province, China, has shown that surveys for adult beetles and infested trees at a minimum of 1,500 m from previously infested Trees would assist in preventing continued colonization in the current U.S. infestations.

Host tree resistance against the polyphagous wood‐boring beetle Anoplophora glabripennis

Golden‐rain tree and callery pear are present in the native range of A. glabripennis and may have developed resistance to the beetle by virtue of exposure to attack during their evolutionary history, which may include compounds that are toxic or which otherwise interfere with normal growth and development of the beetle.

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.

Selectivity mechanism of Anoplophora glabripennis on four different species of maples

The epidermal hairs of the four host plants revealed that the extent of damage was related to the physical characteristics of the host plants, and Ocimene was the most attractive to Anoplophora glabripennis among these species.
