Current situation of research and control on Poplar Longhorned Beetle, especially for Anoplophora glabripennis in China.

Abstract

This paper discusses the current status of research on poplar longhorned beetles, particularly on A. glabripennis (Asian longhorned bettle (ALB)) control, in China. The current ALB control measures focus on ALB individual, individual host tree of ALB and pest ecosystem. Other control techniques, such as management of luring tree by using insecticides, quarantine, biological control using entomopathogens and parasitoids, and development of phyto-attractants, are briefly discussed. The distribution area of ALB and the reasons of severe damage of ALB in China are briefly described, and the interspecific relationship between A. glabripennis and A. nobilis is mentioned.
