Description: Bark beetles kill more standing timber than any other agent, including fire (U.S.D.A. Forest Resource Report No. 14, 1958), and thus constitute a major threat to one of our important natural resources. Since it is often impractical or undesirable to treat infestations chemically (Carson, 1962; Rudd, 1964), more attention is now being given to the study of natural control agents (Beal, 1965). McGugan (1962) urged support of research dealing with natural enemies of forests pests and stressed their importance in overall population dynamics of pest species. Also, Voute (1964) has pointed out the necessity of studying noxious insects under endemie as well as epidemic conditions.
