Response of eastern larch beetle (Coleoptera: Scolytidae) in Alaska to its natural attractant and to Douglas-fir beetle pheromones



Response of eastern larch beetle (Coleoptera: Scolytidae) in Alaska to its natural attractant and to Douglas-fir beetle pheromones



Canadian Entomologist 109(2): 289-294



The first recorded extensive infestation of Dendroctonus simplex Lec. (a pest of larches (especially Larix laricina (tamarack)) in the USA and Canada (see RAE/A 14, p. 81; 18, p. 245; 21, p. 541)) in Alaska in 1975, provided an opportunity to investigate in the field in the McKinley River drainage, Alaska, the reaction of the scolytid to its natural attractant and to pheromones produced by D. pseudotsugae Hopk., with which it is capable of interbreeding.
