Title: Dispersal of the emerald ash borer, Agrilus planipennis, in newly-colonized sites

Author: Mercader, Rodrigo J.; Siegert, Andrew M.; Liebhold, Andrew M.; McCullough, Deborah G.;

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Emerald ash borer Agrilus planipennis Fairmaire (Coleoptera: Buprestidae) is an invasive forest insect pest threatening more than 8 billion ash (Fraxinus spp.) trees in North America. Development of effective survey methods and strategies to slow the spread of A. planipennis requires an understanding of dispersal, particularly in recently established satellite populations. We assessed the dispersal of A. planipennis beetles over a single generation at two sites by intensively sampling ash trees at known distances from infested ash logs, the point source of the infestations. Larval density was recorded from more than 100 trees at each site.

Keywords: biological invasions, Buprestidae, insect dispersal, invasive forest pest
