Product information "ThanasiWit"

Pheromone to attract ant beetle (Thanasimus sp.): Pheromone to attract useful insects and to prevent them from being caught in pheromone traps!

Useful insects are important natural enemies of bark beetle species (e.g., European spruce bark beetle and six-toothed spruce bark beetle) and can contribute considerably to reducing bark beetle populations in forests. The ThanasiWit® pheromone was specifically developed to attract useful insects in spruce forests. The messenger substance in ThanasiWit® attracts various ant beetle species (Thanasimus formicarius, T. femoralis) that have long been known as natural enemies of bark beetles. A series of tests has been carried over several years and ThanasiWit® has proven to be very effective.

Use and application recommendation for ThanasiWit® in spruce forests:

  • To attract ant beetles to (cleared) pockets of infestation and to log stacks to reduce bark beetle population.
    Place ThanasiWit® dispenser sheltered from weather conditions freely in target location, e.g., close to beetle nests or log stacks. The useful insects attracted can also help prevent bark beetles from infesting healthy trees and reduce the development of a next beetle generation in log stacks.

  • To prevent useful insects from being caught in pheromone traps
    Pheromone traps may also attract and catch Thanasimus species. ThanasiWit® can specifically be used to direct these natural enemies of bark beetles to a different location and, thus, prevent them from being caught in traps so that they still can act as useful insect in your forest. Freely place ThanasiWit® sheltered from weather conditions in target location (recommended installation: 2 to 7 metres into the stand, i.e., installation in the forest – measured from the edge of the forest). The recommended minimum distance to bark beetle trapping systems is 15 to 20 metres. The useful insects attracted can also help prevent bark beetles from infesting healthy trees.
