Description: To establish the life cycle of EAB was one of the first objectives of EAB research. Our expectation was that Agrilus planipennis phenology would coincide roughly with that of well-characterized Agrilus species such as A. anxius and A. bilineatus: 1) mid-summer adult flight and oviposition; 2) complete four stages of larval development by fall; 3) non-feeding prepupal stage overwinter; and 4) pupation in late spring. Evidence in support of this assumption includes observations demonstrating synchronous pupation and adult flight and summer/fall dissection series showing steady progression of larval size.
