Description: A first principle modeling approach has been applied to available data describing the elution of semiochemicals from pheromone dispensers. These data included field data for 27 products developed by several manufacturers, including homemade devices, as well as environmental chamber data collected on three semiochemical products. The goal of this effort was to understand the underlying mechanisms controlling the elution process and to provide guidance to forest managers responsible for positioning these devices to avert insect infestation of valuable timberlands in the U.S.
Keywords: Dispenser, Elution rate, Model pheromone, Semiochemical.
