Asian longhorned beetles pheromone could be used to manage pest
Date:2/13/2014

walk on it, they pick up the fungus, which infects and kills them. By also applying the pheromone that female beetles use to attract males, we can trick the male beetles into going to the deadly fungicide rather than to a fertile female."

The team plans to further investigate the pheromone by attempting to identify where on the body the female produces it, how the pheromone is detected by the male, how long the pheromone remains detectable on the tree and if there are other behaviors that might be mediated by these chemicals.
