The Attractiveness of Manuka Oil and Ethanol, Alone and in Combination, to Xyleborus glabratus (Coleoptera: Curculionidae: Scolytinae) and Other Curculionidae

C. W. Johnson, R. S. Cameron, J. L. Hanula, C. Bates

Abstract


The addition of a trap baited with manuka oil or longer lasting cubeb oil lures (Hanula et al. 2013) along with those baited with ethanol for surveys targeting detection of non-native, invasive Curculionidae could improve these surveys by also targeting the destructive redbay ambrosia beetle.

 

La adición del señuelo de aceite de manuka a trampas cebadas con etanol en los sondeos de detección de Curculionidae no nativos invasivos puede mejorar estos sondeos al también detectar el destructivo e invasivo escarabajo ambrosia del laurel rojo.
