Increased release of host volatiles from feeding scars: a major cause of field aggregation in the pine weevil Hylobius abietis (Coleoptera: Curculionidae)






Environmental Entomology, 155: 1050-1054

Increased release of host volatiles from feeding scars: a major cause of field aggregation in the pine weevil Hylobius abietis (Coleoptera: Curculionidae)

Field tests were conducted with Hylobius abietis in Sweden during 1982 and 1983 to study how weevils feeding on host material affect attractivity of this host material to other individuals of H. abietis. Pitfall traps baited with a combination of male or female weevils and cut stems of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) caught more weevils of both sexes than pine alone. Weevils of either sex were not attractive in the absence of host material.

The adult feeding preferences of Hylobius abietis were tested at 3 temperatures (10, 15 and 20 degrees C) with 3 different host plants (Pinus sylvestris, Picea abies and Fraxinus excelsior) in simple paired choice tests. At all temperatures adult...
