Mark record


The banded elm bark beetle, Scolytus schevyrewi Semenov was dected for the first time in British Columbia near Kelowna during 2010. Fifty-eight S. schevyrewi were captured in an experiment that targeted the European elm bark beetle, Scolytus multistriatus (Marsham). It was a test of the efficacy of a new trap design relative to the multiple funnel trap currently used in surveillance programs for invasive bark- and wood-boring Coleoptera. Data on the season occurrence of the banded elm bark beetle are presented.
