  • The western balsam bark beetle, Dryocoetes confusus Sw., and Pityokteines minutus (Sw.), colonize Abies lasiocarpa (Hook.) Nutt. ; they are sympatric in B.C. with Dryocoetes affaber (Mann.) which inhabits Picea spp. Chemical analyses of volatiles produced by feeding male D. confusus and D. affaber disclosed (+)-exo-brevicomin and (+)-endo-brevicomin [(+)EXOB and (+)ENDOBI, as the major insect produced compounds. In laboratory olfactometer bioassays and field trapping experiments, D. confusus… CONTINUE READING
