DescriptionDuring field evaluations of pheromone blends used for monitoring Tomicus piniperda beetles, many non-target beetles were captured and identified. Five pheromone blends, plus commercially available TOMODOR were used in two different traps: the IPM Tech Intercept PTBB and the THEYSOHN intercept barrier trap. In addition to Tomicus bark beetles we trapped 3,469 other Coleoptera in three of the 10 replications that represented 53 species distributed among 27 families. Most numerous were representatives of Staphyllinidae, Elateridae, Cleridae and Rhizophagidae. Temporal distribution of the most important predatory species as well as their responsiveness to pheromone blends is presented. The results are discussed in terms of interspecies chemical communication and few practical aspects relevant for the potential use in Tomicus monitoring or suppression activities.
