Abstract: The genus Agrilus is one of the most diverse insect genera worldwide. The larval feeding activity causes extensive damage in both forests and orchards. In addition, more than 30 species have been introduced outside their native range so far, including the emerald ash borer Agrilus planipennis Fairmaire. Thus, the availability of efficient trapping protocols for early detection of Agrilus species at entry points is of utmost importance. In this study we tested whether trapping protocols developed for surveillance of A. planipennis in North America were also effective for other Agrilus species. In particular, through a multi-country assessment we compared the efficacy of detecting Agrilus species on: (i) green glue-coated prism traps vs. green Fluon-coated multi-funnel traps when baited with the green leaf volatile (Z)-3-hexenol or left unbaited; and (ii) green multi-panel traps vs. green multi-panel traps baited with dead adult Agrilus beetles (decoys). A total of 23,481 individuals from 45 Agrilus species were caught. Trap design significantly affected both species richness and abundance of Agrilus species in several of the countries where the trapping experiments were carried out, and green prism traps outperformed green multi-funnel traps in most cases. On the contrary, the addition of a (Z)-3-hexenol lure or dead adult beetle decoys on to traps did not improve trap catches. Our study highlights that reliable trap models to survey Agrilus species are already available, but also that there is the clear need to further investigate chemical ecology of Agrilus species to develop semiochemical lures that can improve detection efficacy.

Razširjenost dvojnozobega smrekovega lubadarja (Ips duplicatus) v Sloveniji v letu 2023
Maarten De Groot, Tine Hauptman, Marija Kolšek, 2023, short scientific article

Abstract: Članek prikazuje rezultate raziskave razširjenosti vrste Ips duplicatus (Sahlberg, 1836) v Sloveniji v letu 2023. Uporabili smo 14 režastih pasti tipa Theysohn, ki so bile opremljene s feromonom Dupliwit. V raziskavo smo vključili tudi tri križne prestrezne pasti brez feromona, ki so bile postavljene v sklopu drugega projekta in smo v njih odkrili vrsto I. duplicatus. Prisotnost vrste smo potrdili na šestih lokacijah, skupno pa smo ujeli osem osebkov. Predstavljena je razprava o pomenu teh najdb v kontekstu razširjenosti, spremljanja in upravljanja dvojnozobega smrekovega lubadarja.
