Cigarette beetle, Lasioderma serricorne, pheromone trap monitoring program

Philip Morris USA, Richmond, VA, USA
Cigarette beetle, Lasioderma serricorne, pheromone traps have demonstrated the capability to monitor adult populations of the cigarette beetle from warehouse, cigarette manufacturing and shipment of finished goods. Pheromone traps were shown to be effective devices for detecting and establishing an infestation threshold by which the pest manager takes corrective action. Discussion will include trap placement and density, efficiency, mas trapping to isolate specific infestations, record keeping and effective measures for sanitation/cleaning initiatives.
