Title: Field Response of Dendroctonus frontalis (Coleoptera: Scolytinae) to Synthetic Semiochemicals in Chiapas, Mexico.

Author: Moreno, Benjamin; Macias, Jorge; Sullivan, Brian ; Clarke, Stephen

Date: 2008

Source: Journal of Economic Entomology

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Dendroctonus frontalis Zimmermann (Coleoptera: Scolytinae) is the most serious pestof pines (Pinus spp.) in Mexico. ConspeciÞcs are attracted to trees undergoing colonization by the  aggregation pheromone frontalin, which is synergized by odors of pine oleoresin released from beetle-damaged host tissue. Synthetic racemic frontalin combined with turpentine has been the operational bait used in traps for monitoring populations ofD. frontalis in Mexico as well as the United States. Recently, racemic endo-brevicomin has been reported to be a synergist of the frontalin/turpentine bait and as an important component of the aggregation pheromone for D. frontalis populations in the United States.

Keywords: bark beetles, endo-brevicomin, monitoring, pheromone, attractant synergist
