Bagremova muha siskarica se u Hrvatskoj može smatrati novom invazivnom vrstom stetnika na bagremu, a njezini glavni vektori rasprostranjenja Europom bili su intenzivna trgovina biljnim materijalom.
New associations of phoretic mites on Pityokteines curvidens (Coleoptera, Curculionidae, Scolytinae)

ULOGA JELOVIH KRIVOZUBIH POTKORNJAKA U SUŠENJU JELE I MOGUĆNOSTI PRIMJENE FEROMONSKIH KLOPKI ZA NJIHOV MONITORING THE ROLE OF BARK BEETLES IN SILVER FIR DECLINE AND POSSIBLE USE OF PHEROMONE TRAPS
TLDR
Na temelju toga pretpostavlja se da potkornjacima naseljeno devedesetogodisnje stablo jele izravno ugrožava 50-60 stabala u iducoj godini, te se zakljucuje kako je klopke smisleno koristiti samo u tim mjesecima.
