A bioassay for tunneling responses of southern pine beetles to host extractives



A bioassay for tunneling responses of southern pine beetles to host extractives



Journal of the Georgia Entomological Society, 164: 484-492



A gustatory bioassay for Dendroctonus frontalis Zimm. was developed in the USA to determine whether chemicals extracted from tissues of the food-plant influenced tunnelling. Gustatory deterrents and stimuli were found in extracts of the outer and inner bark of loblolly pine (Pinus taeda), and the bioassay showed that the beetle responses were influenced both by the nature of the active substances extracted and by their concentrations.
