The responses of H. abietis to a wide range of concentrations of 2 model host [pine] terpenes were examined in a laboratory. Newly emerged, pre-mature and swarming weevils differed in their responses to 3-carene and .alpha.-terpineol. The olfactory behavior of H. abietis is considered in relation to results obtained from light reaction experiments performed at the same stages of its life cycle.
