Steed, Brytten E.; Wagner, Michael R. 2008. Seasonal pheromone response by Ips pini in northern Arizona and western Montana, U.S.A. Agricultural and Forest Entomology. 10: 189-203.

Populations of Ips pini (Say) in northern Arizona and western Montana, U.S.A., were studied to determine regional pheromone response and to evaluate seasonal shifts in that response. A range of enantiomeric blends of the attractant ipsdienol, alone and in the presence of the synergist lanierone, were tested during spring and summer seasons over several years.

Keywords: bark beetle, competitor, enantio-specificity, pheromone response, pine engraver, predator, seasonal abundance, seasonal behavior
