Abstract

The citrus longhorned beetle, Anoplophora chinensis, is an important trunk borer and has an extensive host range.It is difficult to control the beetle as it is hidden in the truck and has a long larvae duration. A method for rearing the beetle is required to underpin studies of the biology and management, therefore the objective of this study was to compare insect performance on candidate artificial diets and temperature regimes.
