Title: Evaluation of general-use insecticides for preventing host colonization by New Jersey southern pine beetles.

Author: Strom, Brian; Oldland, W.K.; Meeker, J.R.; Dunn, J.;

Date: 2015

Source: Arboriculture & Urban Forestry 41(2)

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Four general-use insecticides (Astro, Onyx, Dominion Tree & Shrub, and Xytect 2F) were evaluated for their effectiveness at preventing attacks by the southern pine beetle (SPB) (Dendroctonus frontalis) and the small southern pine engraver (Ips avulsus) using a previously developed small-bolt method. Evaluations were conducted between 58 and 126 days post treatment. Southern pine beetles from New Jersey and Mississippi, U.S., were evaluated using a mixture of field and laboratory small-bolt trials; beetle origina did not appear to affect results.

Keywords: Bifenthrin, dendroctonus frontalis, imidacloprid, insecticide, ips avulsus, Mississippi, New Jersey, permethrin, pinus, soil drench, southern pine beetle, southern pine engraver, systemic insecticide
