Title: cis-Verbenol: An aggregation pheromone for the mountain pine beetle, Dendroctonus ponderosae Hopkins (Coleoptera: Scolytidae)

Author: Miller, Daniel R.; Lafontaine, Jean P.;

Date: 1991

Source: J. Entomol. Soc. Brit. Columbia 88: 34-38

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: cis-Verbenol increased catches of mail mountain pine beetles, Dendroctonus ponderosae Hopkins, to multiple-funnel traps baited with myrcene and exo-brevicomin. Cis-Verbenol had no effect on the response of males to traps baited with myrcene, exo-brevicomin and trans-verbenol. In contrast, cis-verbenol increased catches of female D. ponderosae to semiochemical-baited traps irrespective of the absence or presence of trans-verbenol. Our results demonstrate that cis-verbenol is an aggregation pheromone for D. ponderisae and that the combination of cis- and trans-verbenol elicits sex-specific response.

Keywords: trans-verbenol, myrcene, exo-brevicomin, sex-specificity
