Field tests of 3-methyl-2-cyclohexen-1-one (MCH), the antiaggregation pheromone of the spruce beetle, Dendroctonus rufipennis Kirby, were conducted in south-central Alaska in stands of Lutz spruce, Picea x lutzii Little, and Sitka spruce, P. sitchensis (Bong.) Carr. The deployment of MCH in a novel releaser significantly reduced trap catches and spruce beetle attacks on standing live spruce by 96 and 87%, respectively. The results of this study demonstrate the first successful field test of MCH in Alaska for the prevention of spruce beetle attacks on standing, live spruce.
