Method for collection of live redbay ambrosia beetles, Xyleborus glabratus (Coleoptera: Curculionidae: Scolytinae)
Florida Entomologist 95 (2), 513-516
Abstract: Development of improved lures for Xyleborus glabratus will be expedited through experimental research conducted with host-seeking females. As an alternative to laboratory rearing of X. glabratus, we developed a simple method for field collection of dispersing females using freshly-cut host wood as bait. Female X. glabratus collected with this method are behaviorally and physiologically in host-seeking mode, ideally suited for evaluation of host-based attractants in controlled laboratory tests.
