Each wood block was examined on the day of recovery and the wood borers
were identified under a dissecting microscope.
infestation begins with arrival of migrant population moths from wild host as well as maize stems left on the field after the previous season's crop harvesting, or the stems used for fencing in homestead (Polaszek 1998 Sosan and Daramola 1999).
Domingue said he and his team of researchers have "gained new insights into how to manipulate the behavior of emerald ash borers
and similar pests in ways that can help to trap them and monitor where they might be doing damage."
She said the second discovery of an emerald ash borer
in Andover was made by a birder who noticed odd woodpecker activity on an ash tree.

Resistance of different basmati rice varieties to stem borers
under different control tactics of IPM and evaluation of yield.
In the same plots, for the assessment of arthropod pests (borers
), ten sugarcane stalk debris and ten stubbles in each acre were randomly selected.
The stem borer
is active from March to November and passes the winter as full grown larvae in the stubble.
Among the factors responsible for low yield, insect pests especially sugarcane borers
(Scirpophaga novella), stem borer
(Chilo infuscatellus), root borer
(Emmalocera depressella) and gurdaspur borer
(Bisetia stenielus) are the most important ones.
While adult borers
are capable of flight, they don't travel far.
Common insect pests of maples include flatheaded appletree borer
(Chrysobothris femorata [Olivier]) (Coleoptera: Buprestidae), ambrosia beetles (e.g., Xylosandrus crassiusculus [Motschulsky]) (Coleoptera: Curculionidae), maple and two-spotted spider mites (Oligonychus aceris [Shimer] and Tetranychus urticae Koch) (Trombidiformes: Tetranychidae), maple shoot borer
(Proteoteras aesculana Riley) (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae), maple leaftier (Episimus tyrius Heinrich) (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae), potato leafhopper (Empoasca fabae [Harris]) (Hemiptera: Cicadellidae), and various species of armored and soft scales (Hemiptera) (Frank et al.
