The woodwasp Sirex noctilio, Fabricius (Hymenoptera: Siricidae) is a pest of pine species first detected in the U.S. in New York state in 2004. Females inject mucus and the spores of the symbiotic fungus Amylostereum aerolatum when ovipositing or probing through the bark, which may eventually lead to the death of the tree. In North America the major host species are Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris), red pine (P. resinosa), and white pine (P. strobus).
