The emerald ash borer (EAB), Agrilus planipennis, is a nonnative insect from Asia that threatens ash trees in the urban and natural forests of North America. Research on this invasive insect and rearing parasitoids for release rely heavily on the ability to artificially rear EAB. Methods to maintain EAB adults and obtain eggs exist, but result in inconsistent adult fecundity and longevity. Here, we evaluate the effects of host plant, temperature, humidity, and oviposition substrates on adult survival and fecundity.
