Controlling insect pests in forests is a constant challenge. Aside from prevention and monitoring, there are very few means available to achieve this goal. With the aim of heading off trouble and minimizing damage to trees, some Canadian Forest Service researchers have refined the use of pheromones as a tool for manipulating the reproductive behaviour of insects. This method is called mating disruption.
