Topical Collection Information
The red-necked longhorn beetle Aromia bungii (Faldermann) (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae), native to continental Asia and surrounding areas, has in the last decade begun to expand its distribution area to other parts of the world. This wood-boring pest is a serious threat to stone fruit trees such as peach, plum, and cherry. Understanding its biology and developing effective countermeasures are crucial to stopping the damage and preventing further spread. This Topical Collection aims to collect, from both native and introduced ranges, recent findings on the biology and control of A. bungii. Topics of particular interest include ecology, physiology, and behavior; protection methods and planning; early detection methods; modeling; molecular ecology; and other kinds of data that may be useful to overcoming this new challenge in agriculture.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the collection website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Insects is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
