The upper surface of the leaf remains but eventually dries and turns brown; there is only minor damage. Hosts: Northern red oak, northern pin oak, pin oak, swamp white oak, white oak and bur oak. Management: Management of elm sawflies is rarely needed. Use a pesticide if it is necessary to treat larvae. Larvae feed for four to six weeks and complete development by late July. When sawflies feed on the needles and leaves, they receive a toxic dose. They have a light colored stripe running down its back, two light colored stripes and one dark stripe on each side. (For a list of bee attractive trees and shrubs, see Native trees and shrubs for pollinators). Adult elm sawflies feed on tree sap and sometimes resulting in girdling and death of the limbs. This gives a lacy appearance at first; eventually damaged areas turn brown. Larvae feed on foliage at the tips of twigs and branches. A common sawfly in Minnesota is found on columbine. They drop to the soil to transform into pupae where they remain until the following spring. Adults typically emerge in the spring or early summer. The fruit of the black birch is a brown, cone-like aggregate, that is 1-1.5 inches in length. Larvae begin feeding around mid-May and continue through June. High numbers can cause defoliation. Hosts: White spruce is preferred; all spruce species native to North America and Norway spruce can be potential hosts. (Amauronematus azalea and Nematus lipvskyi). Appearance: Larvae have shiny black heads and distinct black spots on their bodies. The body is light yellow to light green in color (sometimes they are pink) with a black stripe along its back and black dots on the base of each segment. They are about 25 mm (1") when fully grown. Small numbers of sawflies can be physically removed from plants and killed by putting them into a pail of soapy water. Appearance: This is the largest species of sawfly found in North America. It is specific to caterpillars and does not kill sawfly larvae. Hosts: Plum, cherry, cotoneaster, pear, mountain-ash and hawthorn. After feeding, larvae drop to the ground and spin cocoons where they spend the winter as prepupae (the stage between a mature larva and pupa). They spend the winter as larvae in soft or rotten wood and transform into pupae in the spring. The first appearance of larvae can vary depending on the arrival of spring weather and the part of Minnesota where the trees or shrubs are located. Privacy policy. ADW doesn't cover all species in the world, nor does it include all the latest scientific information about organisms we describe. There is one generation per year. In April and May, flowers open. Croesus latitarsus dusky birch sawfly. Jeffrey Hahn, Extension entomologist and John Lloyd. University of Minnesota Extension discovers science-based solutions, delivers practical education, and engages Minnesotans to build a better future. Facebook. Adults emerge in early May and lay eggs that hatch in late May. Repeated defoliation can slow growth and negatively affect their appearance. Damage: Young larvae consume all of the leaf except for the mid-vein and main lateral veins. Early detection allows for more effective treatment and reduced damage to host plants. Management: Look for dusky birch sawfly during spring and again in mid-summer. Adults emerge over a six-week period and larvae can be seen up to July. Live through the winter as eggs in last season's needles. Look for columbine sawflies starting in early spring. Larvae feed from late June to early August. Use a pesticide if it is necessary to treat larvae. They spend the winter as pupae in the soil.

Adults emerge from late May through July and lay eggs on the leaves. Upon ripening in the late summer/early fall, the fruit breaks apart, releasing its seeds. First generation larvae begin feeding from late May into early June. Extension is expanding its online education and resources to adapt to COVID-19 restrictions.
