Raffaelea lauricola is the causal agent of laurel wilt and a fungal symbiont of its vector, the redbay ambrosia beetle, Xyleborus glabratus. Beetle populations increase rapidly where redbays have died from laurel wilt. In a series of experiments using bolts from healthy and diseased trees, X. glabratus reproduced better in bolts from diseased redbay; ratio of beetles emerged to entrance holes (BE/EH ratio) ranged from 4.1 to 6.0 in diseased bolts versus 0.3 to 1.9 in healthy bolts.
