MCH pheromone-release bubble capsule

MCH pheromone-release bubble capsule

The bubble capsule formulation of the Douglas-fir beetle antiaggregation pheromone, known as MCH, is attached to a tree in a treatment area, and the capsule slowly releases the pheromone over the period of adult beetle dispersal. The development of this application was the first time a bark-beetle antiaggregation pheromone was shown to be effective at preventing the successful colonization of live trees.
