Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted to "examine the dispersal pattern of non-mated and mated oriental beetle females." Explains that "the oriental beetle (OB) is the most important turfgrass insect pest in New Jersey, Connecticut, Rhode island, and southeastern New York." Describes the experiment and the methods used.

USGA Summary Points:OB males are attracted to pheromone lures and formulation pellets from at least 200 feet distance, but attraction to females is weaker and usually under 100 ft. A 1:1 sex ratio in black light trap captures suggest that female OB may disperse similarly as males. Limited direct observations suggest limited dispersal of females over short periods. Traps used to evaluate the efficacy of mating disruption should use lower pheromone loads than previously used (0.3 ╬╝g vs. 30-300 ╬╝g) and red rubber septa with low pheromone loads (0.3 ╬╝g) could replace virgin females in cages used to evaluate mating disruption.
