The ongoing goals of this research is to develop trap trees for Sirex noctilio (Hymenoptera: Siricidae), an invasive Eurasian pest of pine, recently discovered in New York, Pennsylvania, Vermont, Michigan, and Ontario, Canada. Trap trees for this pest can be used for two purposes: detection (in conjunction with traps and trapping devices), and control (as reservoirs of host material for the nematode, Deladenus siricidicola). Our current research efforts have been conducted in the central New York counties of Onodaga, Oswego, Cayuga and Madison.
