    Description

    There is a critical need for information on the reproductive behavior of Anoplophora glabripennis (Motschulsky) to provide the biological basis for predicting population dynamics, especially as the population size declines due to eradication efforts. To document the reproductive behaviors (both mating and oviposition) five males each from the Chicago, IL and Queens, NY strains were mated to three virgin females. When each male was approximately 2, 4, and 6 weeks old he was paired with a female of similar age from the same strain (with one exception). To observe reproductive behaviors, a pair was placed together, for 6 hours or less when natural separation occurred, in a 3.8-liter glass jar with an Acer saccharum Marshall bolt (3-7 cm diameter and 20 cm long) as a potential oviposition substrate. After mating females were provided fresh A. saccharum twigs and bolts weekly until death to assess fecundity and fertility.
