DescriptionWe have long known that the bark beetle-produced pheromone, verbenone (trimethyl-bicyclo-heptenone), can limit damage to pines by scolytid bark beetles (Clarke et al. 1999, Skillen et al. 1997, Syracuse Environmental Research Associates, Inc. 2000). It has also been shown that in some cases the addition of ―green leaf volatiles‖ (GLVs) can increase the efficacy of verbenone in protecting host trees (Wilson et al. 1996; Borden et al. 2003; Huber et al. 2003; Kegley and Gibson 2009).
