Increasing numbers of invasive wood-boring beetles (cerambycids) are transported to new continents by global commerce and threaten forest health worldwide. Forest Service entomologists at the agency's Northern Research Station and partners are working to develop effective detection tools for a broad array of wood-boring (cerambycid) beetles by testing attractants in different trap designs placed across a range of habitats. Traps were placed at ground and canopy levels in residential, industrial, deciduous forest, or conifer forest sites with 8 different lure combinations. The slippery fluoropolymer (Fluon) enhanced capture of cerambycids in all trap designs for up to two years. Overall, panel traps captured about 1.5 times more beetles than funnel traps and more species were captured in hardwood sites, where there was a greater diversity of host material than in conifer, residential, or industrial sites. Species composition varied with the lures tested. The scientists suggest that an array of panel traps baited with different lure combinations and installed across a vertical gradient should maximize the number of cerambycid species captured. Conditioning traps with Fluon enhances the efficacy and sensitivity of traps deployed to detect exotic cerambycid species.
