Description: Endemic populations of the southern pine beetle (Dendroctonus frontalis Zimm.) and Ips spp. attacked loblolly pines (Pinus taeda L.) on which lightning strikes were simulated with detonating cord in the field. Southern pine beetles were reared in successive generations in these trees from fall 1981 through spring 1982; only Ips spp. attacked treated trees through December 1982. Lightning strike simulation provides an alternative means of studying bark beetle attack and opens the way for comparisons with natural lightning strikes.
Keywords: lightning strike simulation, southern pine beetle, Ips, Dendroctonus frontalis.
