Develop designs for breeding stations and attractiveness of various pheromone and fungal lures for predatory flat bark beetles.
Predatory beetle pheromone is being blended with fungal and food odors to find a strong attractant. Attractants are being field tested in a macadamia nut farm in Hawaii with high numbers of the predatory flat bark beetles.
