Title: Predictors of southern pine beetle flight activity
Author: Moser, John C.; Dell, T.R.
Source: Forest Sci., Vol. 25(2): 217-222
Description: An equation based on weather data explained differences in capture counts of pine bark beetles trapped twice weekly for an entire year at a single infestation and contributed to the udnerstanding of some aspects of beetle dynamics. The proportion of the beetles that reached the traps increased with maximum temperature and decreased with heavy rain. Production of adults tended to be low in midsummer.
Keywords: Dendroctonus frontalis, potential evaportranspiration, weather, seasonal patter, scolytidae
