Description: Three major species of Ips bark beetles (Coleoptera: Scolytidae) in the southeastern United States, I. avulsus (Eichoff), I. calligraphus (Germar), and I. grandicollis (Eichoff), attack all species of pines in their range, sometimes causing significant tree mortality (Thatcher, 1960 USDA Forest Service Occasional paper 180, 25 pp.) Coincident with region-wide drought, pine mortality due to Ips has been severe throughout the southeastern United States in recent years. For example, losses in 1999 were estimated at about U.S. $13 million dollars, second only to the southern pine beetle in value lost from insect-caused mortality (Report on losses caused by forest insects, Southern Forest Insect Work Conference, 2000).

Keywords: Attractant, bark beetle, chirality, lanierone, pheromone, Scolytidae
