Predation of invasive red-necked longhorn beetle Aromia bungii (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) eggs and hatchlings by native ants in Japan
Investigation of whether Japanese native ants play a role in the biotic resistance through predation to red-necked longhorn beetle Aromia bungii suggested that Japanese native ant fauna can play a certain role inBiotic resistance to A. bungii.
Factors Affecting the Reproduction and Mass-Rearing of Sclerodermus brevicornis (Hymenoptera: Bethylidae), a Natural Enemy of Exotic Flat-Faced Longhorn Beetles (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae: Lamiinae)
It is found that adult female longevity declines with increasing storage temperature and that most aspects of subsequent performance are negatively affected by high temperatures, but the adaptability to low temperature storage enhances the suitability of S. brevicornis to mass-rearing programs and thus biocontrol deployment.
Performance of Sclerodermus brevicornis, a parasitoid of invasive longhorn beetles, when reared on rice moth larvae
This study explored an alternative host for rearing Sclerodermus brevicornis (Kieffer) (Hymenoptera: Bethylidae), a potential biocontrol agent for the suppression of exotic and invasive wood‐boring longhorn beetle populations in the European agroforestry ecosystems.
Chemical Compounds Emitted from Mentha spicata Repel Aromia bungii Females
Simple Summary Aromia bungii (Faldermann) (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) is a serious wood borer of stone fruit trees. Native to parts of Asia and Russia, this beetle recently invaded Germany, Italy, and
Mitochondrial genome of Aromia bungii (Coleoptera: Chrysomeloidea: Cerambycidae) and phylogenetic analysis
The sequenced and analyzed the complete mitochondrial genome of red-necked longhorn beetle A. bungi,i and positioned it in a well-supported clade within the subfamily Cerambycinae with Xystrocera globosa (tribe Xy Strocerini).
First description and comparison of the morphological and ultramicro characteristics of the antennal sensilla of two fir longhorn beetles
The observed difference in the sensillum distribution and function between the two fir longhorn beetles will greatly facilitate the design of better semiochemical control methods of these insect pests.


Studies on biological control of Anoplophora glabripennis (Coleoptera:Cerambycidae) with a parasitoid, Sclerodermus guani (Hymenoptera:Bethylidae)
It was indicated that good control results has been achieved with the parasitoid ratio and host 8-10:1 during releasing, and the field experiment showed that the 1st-3rd instar larvae of the cerambycid could also be controlled by the Parasitoid.
The Ectoparasitoid Scleroderma guani (Hymenoptera: Bethylidae) Uses Innate and Learned Chemical Cues to Locate Its Host, Larvae of the Pine Sawyer Monochamus alternatus (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae)
The odor cues guiding host location in S. guani and the impact of previous host experience on this behavior are elucidated to help improve augmentative biological control using S.guani against M. alternatus and other forest pests.
Studies on Control Young Larvae of Massicus raddei(Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) by Applying Parasitoid Sclerodermus pupariae(Hymenoptera: Bethylidae) and its Supercooling Point
The present study indicates that the parasitoid is a superior biocontrol agent of the oak longhorned beetle in its young larval stage.
Parasitism of Sclerodermus pupariae (Hymenoptera:Bethylidae) on the young larvae of Massicus raddei (Coleoptera:Cerambycidae)
The results showed that the number of killed young larvae of the longhorn beetle significantly increased along with the increase of host densities during the parasitoid adults’ feeding on hosts for supplementary nutrition, which may serve as reference for rational evaluation on the ability of S.pupariae against the pest in fields and establishment of technical criterions for natural enemy release in forests.
Screening substitute hosts for mass rearing of Scleroderma sichuanensis Xiao (Hymenoptera: Bethylidae)
Results showed that of above indices, only two indices, i.e. the parasitization rate and the wasp emergence (%), might have significant difference between different hosts or the same hosts with different anaesthetic treatments and could reflect the substitute host suitability.
In the laboratory, rearings conducted in Beijing, O. furnacalis was used as the factitious host of S. guani, .an important parasitoid of longhorn beetles, Cornborer larvae reared with the artificial
Monoterpenes from Larval Frass of Two Cerambycids as Chemical Cues for a Parasitoid, Dastarcus helophoroides
Kairomones for two populations of D. helophoroides that parasitize A. glabripennis and A. swainsoni were studied to provide information about the co-evolution of the species, its host, and host-food trees.
Re-description of Sclerodermus guani and Revision of the Genus(Hymenoptera:Bethylidae) in China
It was found that S. pupariae is an excellent biocontrol agent for using in control of wood borer pests, e.g. Massicus raddei, Anoplophora glabripennis, Apriona swainsoni,Xylotrechus grayii, Agrilus planipennis and A. mali.
