Dispersal of Anoplophora glabripennis (Cerambycidae)
Abstract As a basis for the development of both eradication and management strategies for control of Anoplophora glabripennis Motschulsky (Asian longhorned beetle) investigations of A. glabripennisExpand
A Male-Produced Aggregation Pheromone of Monochamus alternatus (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae), a Major Vector of Pine Wood Nematode
ABSTRACT The beetle Monochamus alternatus Hope (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) is an efficient vector of pine wood nematode, the causal pathogen of pine wilt disease, that has resulted in devastatingExpand
Resource partitioning and overlap in three sympatric species of Ips bark beetles (Coleoptera: Scolytidae)
The bark beetles Ips pini, I. perroti, and I. grandicollis are sympatric in pine forests of the north-central United States. They share the same limited phloem resource and often coexist within theExpand
Geographic Variation in Response of Pine Engraver, Ips pini, and Associated Species to Pheromone, Lanierone
Lanierone strongly synergized the attraction of male and female Ips pini (Say) to ipsdienol in New York and Wisconsin. Synergy was only weakly significant in Montana and British Columbia and notExpand
Identification of a Male-Produced Aggregation Pheromone for Monochamus scutellatus scutellatus and an Attractant for the Congener Monochamus notatus (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae)
ABSTRACT We report identification and field testing of 2-(undecyloxy)-ethanol (monochamol) as a sex-specific, aggregation pheromone component produced by males of Monochamus scutellatus scutellatusExpand
Lanierone: A new pheromone component fromIps pini (Coleoptera: Scolytidae) in New York
A new pheromone component, lanierone, (2-hydroxy-4,4,6-trimethyl-2,5-cyclohexadien-1-one) was isolated and identified from a Porapak Q collection of volatiles from maleIps pini from New York throughExpand
Beech bark disease in North America: Over a century of research revisited
Abstract American beech (Fagus grandifolia) in the eastern United States and Canada has experienced more than a century of mortality under a steady expansion of disease agents collectively causingExpand
2‐(Undecyloxy)‐ethanol is a major component of the male‐produced aggregation pheromone of Monochamus sutor
The small white‐marmorated longicorn beetle, Monochamus sutor (L.) (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae), is widely distributed throughout Europe and Asia. It is a potential vector of the pine wood nematode,Expand
Synergistic Effect of Ethanol to α-Pinene in Primary Attraction of the Larger Pine Shoot Beetle, Tomicus piniperda
Abstractα-Pinene and ethanol were released in the approximate proportions 1:0.1, 1:0.9 and 1:9 (at 21°C). Ethanol, released in the range of 3–279 mg/day, generally synergized the attraction of T.Expand
The role of lanierone in the chemical ecology ofIps pini (Coleoptera: Scolytidae) in California
Five doses of lanierone (2-hydroxy-4,4,6-trimethyl-2,5-cyclohexadien-1-one) were tested with one dose of enantiomerically pure [99.4% (4R)-(−)] ipsdienol (2-methyl-6-methylene-2,7-octadien-4-ol) forExpand
