Abstract

We determined the responses of the southern pine sawyer, Monochamus titillator (F.) (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae), to the pheromones (ipsenol, ipsdienol, and lanierone) used by pine engraver beetles (Coleoptera: Scolytidae) in the southeastern United States. (±)-Ipsenol, (±)-ipsdienol, or a combination increased catches of M. titillator in Florida, Louisiana, Georgia, and North Carolina. Catches of Acanthocinus obsoletus (Olivier) (Cerambycidae) were increased by (±)-ipsenol and (±)-ipsdienol in Florida and North Carolina, whereas only (±)-ipsenol was attractive in Georgia. (±)-Ipsenol and (±)-ipsdienol were attractive to Pachylobius picivorus (Germar) (Coleoptera: Curculionidae) in Florida, whereas only (±)-ipsdienol was active in Louisiana. In Florida, catches of M. titillator, A. obsoletus, and P. picivorus were greatest in traps baited with both (±)-ipsenol and (±)-ipsdienol. In Louisiana, catches of the woodborer Chalcophora virginiensis (Drury) (Buprestidae) were increased by (±)-ipsenol. Lanierone did not affect trap catches of the aforementioned species. The combination of (±)-ipsenol and (±)-ipsdienol may be a cost-effective lure for these four species because we found no evidence of interruption in attraction to baited traps, and the cost of the lure combination is relatively low.
