  • New Pheromone Traps Lure Asian Longhorned Beetles out of Hiding (Winter 2012)
    USDA. Forest Service.
    Entomologists from the U.S. Forest Service's Northern Research Station and Pennsylvania State University have developed a pheromone trap that lures Asian long-horned beetles out of hiding. Although it is not a treatment that can kill lots of beetles, this new trap is a major step forward in being able to detect the beetle. It may be used for finding outliers and hidden infestations in quarantine zones and standing sentry in high-risk areas.
