Abstract:Gnathotrichus sulcatus LeConte and G. retusus LeConte of both sexes responded significantly to ethanol or their own aggregation pheromones, (±)-sulcatol and (±)- sulcatol, respectively. Ethanol was a synergist of (+ )-sulcatol for both sexes of G. retusus. α-Pinene was neither a primary host attractant nor a synergist of the aggregation pheromones . A 1.5 mg/d release rate of (±)-sulcatol seems to be optimal for trapping G. sulcatus.
