Title: Mites associated with Dendroctonus frontalis Zimmerman (Scolytidae: Coleoptera) in Central America and Mexico

Author: Moser, John C.; Wilkinson, Robert C.; Clark, Edgar W.

Date: 1974

Source: Turrialba Vol. 24(4): 37-381

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: The pine forests of central and North America continually suffer economic damage from the southern pine beetle, Dendroctonus frontalis Zimmerman 1868***, and associated bark beetles. The most severe epidemic in the history of this insect occured in Honduras from 1962 to 1965 (1, 2). Then and subsequently, studies aimed at determining the biology and ecology of the beetle reducing losses were conducted in Honduras, Guatemala and Mexico (2, 6). As part of these investigations boring dust, infested bark, and preserved bark beetles were sent to the U. S. Forest Service Laboratory at Pineville, Louisiana, for the isolation and identification of associated mites.
