Description: Release rates of the aggregation attractants of the smaller European elm bark beetle, Scolytus multistriatus (Marsham), from laboratory-aged and field-aged Conrel and Hercon dispensers were monitored for 85 days by GLC analysis of cold-trapped volatiles. Both dispensers had relatively low and constant rates of decay for all three attractant components after an initial burst in emission rates. Within limits, the ratio of components released remained constant over time and at various temperatures.
Keywords: Scolytus multistriatus, pheromone, Ulmus, lures, volatiles
