Abstract

This study has been done in the pine forests, located in camlik within catalca Forest Management's (Istanbul-Turkey) Silivri Forestry Department, in 2018. The purpose of the study was to investigate biological efficacy of GALLOPRO PINOWIT (R) commercial pheromone product against Monochamus galloprovincialis (Olivier), Ips sexdentatus (Boerner), Orthotomicus erosus (Wollaston) and Hylurgus ligniperda (Fabricius) insect pests on the field. In the study, Scandinavian three funnel traps were used and SMC-ORTIR, TRIPHERON-IPSSEX and TRIPHERON-ORTERO pheromone preparations were used as comparison products. For the evaluation of collected insects count data, two-way ANOVA analysis has been used, variance between preparations-insect counts have been investigated using t test and activity of each preparation has been designated as %. According to the results obtained, it can be concluded that Gallopro Pinowit (R) preparation can be effectively used against pest insects Ips sexdentatus, Orthotomicus erosus, Tomicus sp. and Monochamus galloprovincialis which cause serious damage to coniferous trees.
