Partial age-specific life tables for Monochamus titillator in Dendroctonus frontalis infested loblolly pines
Entomologia Experimentalis et Applicata 97 (3), 331-338
Abstract: Partial age-specific life tables were constructed for Monochamus titillator (Fabricius) (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) in Dendroctonus frontalis Zimmermann (Coleoptera: Scolytidae) infested loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) trees. Successive life stages including egg, early larvae, mid-stage larvae, late larvae, and adult emergence were sampled within six sample trees. Generation mortality ranged from 60.94% to 98.61% in sample trees. Highest mortality typically occurred to eggs and mid-stage larvae. Possible mortality factors included resinosis, predaceous beetles, parasitoids, and woodpeckers. Dendroctonus frontalis brood stages were determined for consecutive M. titillator sampling. Monochamus titillator and D. frontalis coexisted and likely interacted in the phloem of host trees for at least 20 days.
