Verbenone Mountain Pine Beetle Repellent Pouches contain the pheromone verbenone that prevents attacks by the mountain pine beetle on all varieties of pine trees. When present in sufficient concentration, verbenone signals incoming beetles that the target tree is already infested. The result is that the beetles are forced to fly elsewhere making them vulnerable to natural predators.
Verbenone Pine Beetle Repellent helps protect your high-value pine trees. The Pine Beetle is the most destructive forest pest in North America.
The Canadian Forest Service describes the current pine beetle epidemic as the largest insect infestation in North American history.
