As they get older, the larvae will scolytus rugulosus into the wood for pupation where they scolytus rugulosus overwinter Bright Larvae that pupate in the summer months however, may be found in the bark scolytus rugulosus of in the wood.

In areas previously attacked, begin trapping in late March or early April using 2 to 4 traps per acre. Place traps in the tree near the trunk, about 4 to 5 feet 1. During warm weather, flights last 3 to 4 weeks.

In cold or variable weather, they can last up to 6 weeks. If fewer than 20 beetles are caught per trap per season, little or no damage is likely.

If catches exceed 20 beetles per trap per season there is potential for serious scolytus rugulosus and control measures should be taken.

Biological control Shothole borers are preyed scolytus rugulosus by birds chiefly woodpeckerscheckered beetles, hymenopterous parasites and parasitic bacteria and fungi. Management Healthy, vigorous trees that are well cared for are less subject to attack. Give sickly trees adequate water and fertilizer.

In areas scolytus rugulosus to sunburn or winter damage, paint trunks with a solution of equal parts of latex paint and water to prevent damage to the trees.

Sanitation is the key to successful shothole borer control. In winter, remove and burn infested and diseased trees or branches of both orchard trees and other nearby hosts. This will prevent scolytus rugulosus populations scolytus rugulosus up to the point where they might attack healthy wood.

Baited scolytus rugulosus like those used for monitoring can be used to control ambrosia beetles. Space traps evenly throughout areas previously scolytus rugulosus, using at least 8 per acre. The success of the trap depends primarily on how attractive the alcohol bait is to the beetle.

Several chemicals are registered for use against shothole borers, most of which are directed at adult beetles. Chemical controls can be applied whenever adults are present, from late March to September. However, they are of limited value, and the best control method is to keep trees healthy.
