A note on spiders killing bark-beetles

, : A note on spiders killing bark-beetles. Mitteilungen der Schweizerischen Entomologischen Gesellschaft 56(1/2): 195-199

The web-building spider Troxochrus nasutus Schenkel is reported preying on adults of the bark-beetles Hylurgops palliatus (Gylh.) and Pityogenes chalcographus (L.) (Ips chalcographus) in a spruce forest in Switzerland in May 1978.

Host selection in tree-killing bark beetles (Coleoptera: Scolytidae) is mediated by a complex of semiochemical cues. Using gas chromatographic-electroantennographic detection (GC-EAD) and GC-mass spectrometric analyses, we conducted a comparative...

There are a great many spec...

Variability among individuals, regarding the timing of dispersal initiation and travelled distance from source, is assumed to contribute...

Aggregation via pheromone signalling is essential for tree-killing bark beetles to overcome tree defenses and reproduce within hosts. Pheromone production is a trait that is linked to fitness, so high individual variation is paradoxical. One expla...
