Flight Intercept Traps: FITs (also known as barrier traps) are passive traps that are used to collect insects flying through an environment. Many insects when encountering a barrier while flying will either fly up to go over the barrier, or drop down to the ground.

This behavior can be exploited to collect insects. Mountain pine beetle population sampling: A passive aerial barrier trap suitable for sampling flying bark beetles. omnidirectional passive barrier trap of clear Plexiglas is used to census.

range of insects and that are suitable for long-term monitoring (Noriega et al., ). Based on our results, we can recommend the modified window trap for biodiversity assessments (Lindenmayer et al., ). By sampling complementary communities in each collection unit, modified window traps enable more comprehensive sampling.

Abstract. A puddle trap was designed that is simple to build and efficient in catching bark beetles (Coleoptera: Scolytidae). The trap is insensitive to wind and should be much easier to manufacture than the more complicated perforated pipe and barrier traps commercially available.

They are integral components in forest ecosystems by promoting decay of older, mature or injured trees. Bark Beetles and the symbiotic blue stain fungi they carry are a major causal.

Bark Beetles. Trapping Insects. Numerous devices have been developed to use insect behavior to trap specimens rather than having to chase after them.

The advantage of traps is that they can be placed in an area and left for periods of time before specimens are retrieved. One of the earliest types of traps is the fly strip. Bark beetle slit traps are suitable for mass trapping bark beetles and can be used with (wet trapping) or without (dry trapping) a liquid.

Bark beetles bore into wood or into bark to construct galleries for their. The sap can no longer circulate in the tree, the tree begins to dry out and dies.

Bark beetles (Coleoptera: Curculionidae, Scolytinae) are important disturbance agents in conifer forests. The genera Dendroctonus, Ips, and Scolytus are well recognized in this regard ().For example, in western North America, the mountain pine beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae Hopkins) colonizes several tree species, most notably lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta Dougl.

of Agriculture, Intermountain Forest and Range Experiment Station, ), by Richard F. Schmitz and Intermountain Forest and Range Experiment Station (Ogden, Utah) (page images at HathiTrust). One phenylpropanoid, 4-allylanisole, is known to mediate conifer–bark beetle interactions by inhibiting the attraction of flying beetles to the pheromones emitted by a tunneling beetle (Hayes and Strom,Strom et al.,Kelsey et al.,Emerick et al., ).

This compound occurs in both subcortical and foliar tissues. Collecting supplies are somewhat dependent on the groups of insects being searched for and the time of day they are collected. Supplies needed for day collecting can be quite different than those used for night collecting.

The same idea applies to collecting terrestrial insects versus aquatic insects, or flying insects versus soil dwelling insects. 12) Appendix C: How to Submit Bark Beetle Specimens for Identification C.1 Specimens from Wet or Dry Traps was removed from the manual.

Bark and ambrosia beetles (Coleoptera: Curculionidae: Scolytinae & Platypodinae) are among the most damaging forest pests worldwide, and monitoring is essential to damage prevention.

Unfortunately, traps and attractants that are currently used are costly, and agencies rely .Flight interception traps or are net-like or transparent structures that impede flying insects and funnel them into collecting.

Barrier traps consist of a simple vertical sheet or wall that channels insects down into collection containers.

The Malaise trap, a more complex type, is a mesh tent-like trap that captures insects that tend to fly up rather than down when impeded.

Abstract: The relative efficiency of cylindrical, linear and cross‐barrier traps for trapping bark beetles was investigated based on a theoretical model.

Using this model, the effective trap interception area of each trap type was calculated and trap efficiency was defined as the ratio of the effective interception area to the trap surface area.

The relative efficiencies of the three trap.
