Description de l’éditeur

ABSTRACT. Indiana experienced a number of exotic invasive insects of regulatory concern in 2004. Among the species are emerald ash borer, European Sirex woodwasp, Asian ambrosia beetle, two species of longhorned beetles from China, banded elm bark beetle, and Cydella (Tortricidae) and Chlorophorus (Cerambycidae) from Indian pine cones. Pine shoot beetles were discovered in five more counties in 2004. The majority of Indiana's corn crop was planted and harvested earlier than usual in 2004. The western corn rootworm beetle variant pushed its way southward during 2004; and, as a result, for the first time poses moderate risk to first year corn in central and south Indiana counties in 2005. Generally, reports of fruit and vegetable-damaging insects were slightly lower than normal in 2004. Apple pests, including codling moth and spotted tentiform leafminer, were conspicuously absent throughout much of the state. The insect event of the year in 2004 was the mass emergence of Brood X, the 17-year periodical cicada, Magicicada spp., in much of the central and southern parts of the state. Insects in lawns and golf courses were less of a problem in 2004 than usual. Japanese beetles emerged earlier than normal in 2004; and some high, localized populations existed. Keywords: Periodical cicada, emerald ash borer, exotic invasive insects
