Abstract

Imidacloprid is the active ingredient of many widely used products applied to control the emerald ash borer (EAB), Agrilus planipennis Fairmaire, in valuable urban trees. Systemic treatment with imidacloprid is typically made in the spring to reduce the number of larvae that would otherwise be generated by oviposition during the summer. Substantial evidence suggests that imidacloprid suppresses larval density indirectly by its effects on survival and/or reproductive performance of adults interacting with treated foliage.
