A review of the chemical ecology of the Cerambycidae (Coleoptera)
Summary.This review summarizes the literature related to the chemical ecology of the Cerambycidae and provides a brief overview of cerambycid biology, ecology, economic significance, and management.…

We investigated the hypothesis that wood-boring beetles in the genus Monochamus (Cerambycidae) utilize pheromones of sympatric bark beetles as host-finding kairomones. All nine bark beetle pheromones…
Learned and naïve natural enemy responses and the interpretation of volatile organic compounds as cues or signals.
Empirical support for the hypothesized VOC plant-natural enemy signaling function is not universal and alternative hypotheses for VOC production are presented.
Differential Bio-Activity of Ips and Dendroctonus (Coleoptera: Scolytidae) Pheromone Components for Monochamus clamator and M. scutellatus (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae)
Results suggest that operational monitoring or mass-trapping programs could be improved significantly by the inclusion of ipsenol in baits at a minimal cost.
The Impact of Trap Type and Design Features on Survey and Detection of Bark and Woodboring Beetles and Their Associates: A Review and Meta-Analysis.
This work reviewed the literature on trapping bark and woodboring beetles and their associates and conducted meta-analyses to examine patterns in effects across guilds and families, and observed the following general patterns.
Comparative efficacy of five types of trap for woodborers in the Cerambycidae, Buprestidae and Siricidae
1 Traps of four new designs were tested against the conventionally used multiple‐funnel trap to determine whether trapping of large wood‐boring insects can be improved in western Canada. All four new…
Response of the Woodborers Monochamus carolinensis and Monochamus titillator (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) to Known Cerambycid Pheromones in the Presence and Absence of the Host Plant Volatile…

Results indicate that monochamol is a male-produced pheromone for both M. carolinensis and M. titillator, and that antennae of males and females of both species detect it.
Considering species richness and rarity when selecting optimal survey traps: comparisons of semiochemical baited flight intercept traps for Cerambycidae in eastern North America
Individual‐based rarefaction and sample‐based species accumulation curves suggested that SLAM traps are more effective for capturing cerambycid species and should be considered as a strong tool to describe ceram bycid communities when used in conjunction with pheromones and host volatiles.

This study demonstrates that treating multiple-funnel and panel traps with an aerosol dry film lubricant can increase their capture efficiencies for large woodborers as well as bark beetles, a weevil, a woodwasp parasitoid and a bark beetle natural enemy (Coleoptera: Cleridae).
