Title: Technique for Rearing Mite-Free Southern Pine Beetle, Dendroctonus frontalis Zimmermann (Coleoptera: Scolytidae), Adults

Author: Moser, John C.; Bridges, J. Robert

Date: 1983

Source: Annals of the Entomological Society of America 76(6): 942-945

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Southern pine beetles can be reared free of phoretic mites from naturally infested bark if the bark is removed from the tree and air dried. Bark removal does not reduce the number of beetles that emerge. On the average fewer than 1% of the beetles emerging from removed bark carried one or fewer mites, and 85% of the beetles emerging from attacked bard carried one or more mites. Seven species of mites were found on beetles emerging from attached bark.
