Figure 4. Data represents total captures of Ambrosiodmus minor, A. rubricollis, and Ambrosiophilus atratus retrieved from the Early Detection and Rapid Response Surveillance Program for Non-Native Bark and Ambrosia Beetles (USDA Forest Service). Three multi-funnel Lindgren traps with different lures are deployed on each of the twelve sites selected yearly across Florida. Specimens are collected every 2 weeks over a 12-week period every year. Sites are selected in collaboration with the Cooperative Agricultural Pest Survey (CAPS).
