Abstract Abstract. Deathwatch beetles produce taps, by drumming the head on the substrate, which enable males to locate females. The orientation mechanism used by males was examined experimentally using a mechanical tapper to simulate female replies. When searching for a female, males moved short distances before stopping to tap, tapped only once or twice if they got a reply, and turned frequently. In the absence of replies males moved longer distances before stopping to tap, and turned less… Expand
