Tests were conducted to determine the length of time that the smaller European elm bark beetle remained on various surfaces (landing time) after responding to baits of Multilure, a 3-component pheromone system containing α-cubebene, 4-methyl-3-heptanol, and 2-4-di-methyl-5-ethyl-6, 8-dioxabicyclo (3.2.1) octane (multistriatin). Results showed that landing times of beetles on plywood were not affected by the presence of lindane. Beetles remained longer on the boles of American elm, Ulmus Americana L., than on nonelm boles.
