Title: Inocluative release of an exotic predator for the biological control of the black turpentine beetle

Author: Moser, John C.

Date: 1989

Source: Biological Control, Section Twelve: 189-200

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: An inoculative release of the Eurasian predatorial beetle, Rhizophagus grandis, was made for control of the black turpentine beetle, Dendroctonus terebrans Olivier, a prominent native pest of southern pines. If this central Louisiana release proves successful, and rearing programs are prefectied, further releases should expand the geographical range of R. grandis. Because the larval frass of other species of Dendroctonus is highly attractive to R. grandis, this exotic predator may also attack the brood of some or all of the South's Dendroctonus species, including that of the southern pine beetle, Dendroctonus frontalis.
