SYSTEM FOR EARLY DETECTION OF FOREST PESTS
Invasive alien species constitute one of the greatest threats to biodiversity. Roundwood and infested packing and stowage woods have been the vehicle that has allowed the invasion of numerous species of wood borers, or pathogens vectorized by them. The ISPM15 regulation has tried to curb these invasions, although constant vigilance is necessary to detect invasive species. Among these species, the species of borer beetles stand out, which are frequently intercepted in ports throughout the world. According to Rassati et al (2014), the development of early detection methods is a crucial step when implementing rapid response programs, so that these alien species can be quickly detected and action plans can be implemented in time. For this purpose, a tool with sufficient plasticity to attract and capture as many species as possible is essential. The CROSSTRAP® DETECTION system consists of a CROSSTRAP® MINI trap primed with the cairo-pheromonal attractants a-pinene, ethanol, ipsdienol and ipsenol. This system is capable of attracting a large number of species (Gallego and Campo, 2010). Its versatility also allows live captures (with a dry collector) or wet captures (with a collector for wet captures).
EARLY DETECTION OF FOREST PESTS
For early detection of invasive species, at least one CROSSTRAP® MINI baited trap must be installed in areas of high risk of entry of exotic species of saproxylophagi and scolithids, such as Border Inspection Points, customs warehouses, ports or airports with movement of goods. . For early detection it is recommended to opt for wet captures, since it will allow the precise identification of the specimens. To do this, the collectors will be filled with 10 ml of propylene glycol diluted to 10 or 20%. As an alternative, automobile antifreeze can be used. This liquid serves both to kill catches and as a preservative, as long as it is not diluted too much by rain, in which case it should be replaced. The biweekly collection of the catches is recommended as a minimum. The traps can be installed in open spaces inside the facilities, suspended from artificial or natural supports. It is also advisable to install between 1 and 10 traps in the forest masses closest to the points studied in order to increase detection efficiency.
