There is a large amount of operational expertise on the use of semiochemicals for management of forest insect pests that has not been made fully available in a comprehensive fashion to the end product users. In addition, there are promising new tactics and research that have not been published or put into operational perspective. Reductions in district and some regional Ministry of Forests forest health staff and reorganization under DFAM, will create a decline in resources and technology transfer. This project combines currently available information and research on semiochemical tactics used to monitor and manage forest insect pests in BC. The project deliverable is a webpage that will provide a comprehensive picture of available options and factors which should be considered when making management decisions and the limitations of these tactics. The final webpage will be located at http://www.bcsemioguide.ca.
