    Description

    An anti-adult southern pine beetle serum was produced by subcutaneous injection of rabbits with southern pine beetle (SPB) adult antigen. Initial tests demonstrated the ability of the anti-adult SPB serum to detect adult SPB antigen in the body of the adult predator, Thanasimus dubius (F.). Cross reactivity was found between the anti-adult serum and extracts of immature stages of Dendroctonus frontalis Zimmerman, adult D. terebrans (Olivier), lps grandicollis (Eichhoff), and I. calligraphus (Germar). Adult southern pine beetle protein can be detected in a whole predator extract at least 28 hours after feeding.
