A Test of High-Dose Verbenone for Stand-Level Protection of Lodgepole and Whitebark Pine from Mountain Pine Beetle (Coleoptera: Curculionidae: Scolytinae) Attacks
TLDR
Although the verbenone treatment did not prevent beetles from dispersing through treated stands, attacking large-diameter trees most frequently, the overall number of trees attacked was, on average, reduced significantly compared with nontreated stands. Expand
Mountain pine beetle
The mountain pine beetle, Dendroctonus ponderosae Hopkins (Coleoptera: Curculionidae, Scolytinae) is a member of a group of insects known as bark beetles. Its entire life cycle is spent beneath theExpand
PROTECTING WHITEBARK PINE TREES FROM MOUNTAIN PINE BEETLE ATTACK USING VERBENONE
TLDR
Treating individual whitebark pine trees with either two standard or two thicker membrane pouches significantly reduced mountain pine beetle attacks compared to untreated controls. Expand
Health of whitebark pine forests after mountain pine beetle outbreaks
Whitebark pine (Pinus albicaulis), a keystone high-elevation species, is currently at risk due to a combination of white pine blister rust (WPBR) (Cronartium ribicola), forest succession, andExpand
Biology of Dendroctonus murrayanae (Coleoptera: Curculionidae: Scolytinae) in Idaho and Montana and Comparative Taxonomic Notes
TLDR
D. murrayanae occurred in some trees with Pseudips (=Ips) mexicanus (Hopkins), Ips pini (Say), and Hylurgops porosus (LeConte) but seldom with the mountain pine beetle, Dendroctonus ponderosae Hopkins. Expand
Evaluation of establishment of Cyphocleonus achates and its potential impact on spotted knapweed
TLDR
To maximize the use of limited availability of agents and financial resources, the success of biological control releases should be improved by understanding the site requirements of individual biological control agents. Expand
