    Despite the fact that some semiochemicals are being used in various bark beetle management scenarios in western North America there is considerable need for additional research. Various semiochemical-based bark beetle management tactics such as spot baiting, trap-out, concentration and containment, anti aggregation, and use of competing species are all under rigorous field testing. The successful development of these tactics, integrated with other forest management strategies will provide land managers with effective alternatives for reducing the impacts of western bark beetles.
