Verbenone Pouches, Pheromone repellent for Mountain Pine, Southern Pine, Western Pine and other Bark Beetles
Verbenone Mountain Pine Beetle Repellent Pouches contain the pheromone verbenone that prevents attacks by the mountain pine beetle on all varieties of pine trees. When present in sufficient concentration, verbenone signals incoming beetles that the target tree is already infested. The result is that the beetles are forced to fly elsewhere making them vulnerable to natural predators.
Verbenone Pine Beetle Repellent helps protect your high-value pine trees. The Pine Beetle is the most destructive forest pest in North America.
The Canadian Forest Service describes the current pine beetle epidemic as the largest insect infestation in North American history.
Verbenone and how it works. Beetles and other insects communicate using pheromones. Verbenone a synthetic pheromone treatment for high value pine trees & replicates the beetle pheromone, sending a message that the tree is full and that the food supply is insufficient for additional beetles. Arriving beetles receive the "verbenone message" that they should look elsewhere for a suitable host.
Does Verbenone really work? Verbenone has been used as part of integrated pest management programs (IPM) for more than a decade. Many studies show that areas treated with Verbenone, as part of an IPM program, fare significantly better than those that are not.
How safe is Verbenone? Verbenone is environmentally safe and non-toxic to humans, pets and birds. Always follow the verbenone label instructions provided.
How to use Verbenone. Staple or nail the first Verbenone pouch 7 feet high (2m) on the north face of the tree just prior to beetle flight season (April to June, depending upon location). For additional protection attach a second pouch just prior to peak flight (usually mid-August).
