Computer-monitored flight mills were used to record the flight performance of the emerald ash borer, Agrilus planipennis Fairmaire. Flight performance of fed and unfed, and mated and unmated beetles of both sexes were recorded and compared. Mated females flew further per day and longer than unmated females or males.
Keywords: dispersal, emerald ash borer, flight endurance, flight speed, invasive species, migration range expansion
