Abstract

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.
