Feeding Preference for Selected Tilia Spp. and Cultivars by the Adult Japanese Beetle (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae)

Description
The reported study was initiated to evaluate horticulturally desirable Tilia spp. for feeding preference by the adult Japanese beetle. A secondary objective of the study was to determine if leaf pubescence is a factor in feeding preference. Using mean percent leaf area consumed and mean dried fecal pellet weights as measures of susceptibility, the Asian species of T. petiolaris, T. oliveri, T.chinensis, and T. japonica show promise for partial resistance to Japanese beetles.
