Responses of walking ponderosa pine cone beetles, Conophthorus ponderosae Hopkins, to various volatile substances were measured in a laboratory olfactometer. Males were attracted to the combined odors of a female and ¼ freshly cut conelet. Females were attracted to the combined odors of 1 male and ¼ freshly cut conelet. Both males and females were attracted to an ethanol extract of frass and tunnel shaving-s from an infested cone. One percent ponderosa pine cone resin was attractive to females but not to males. Females responded to 1% -pinene but not to the other oleoresin fractions tested.
