Response of the Bronze Birch Borer to Pruning Wounds on Paper Birch    (View PDF)

John Ball

Abstract: Healthy appearing paper birch trees were pruned at the beginning of the bronze birch borer's emergence period. Some wounds were left exposed while others were treated with a commercial wound dressing. Bronze birch borer adults, particularly females, were attracted to fresh pruning wounds on paper birch. Treating the pruning wounds with a wound dressing did not reduce the wound's attractiveness to the borers.
