Description: The Nantucket pine tip moth, Rhyacionia frustrana (Comstock) has become a more prevalent pest in the South as pine plantation management has intensified. The Pine Tip Moth Research Consortium was formed in 1995 to increase basic knowledge about the moth and to explore ways to reduce damage. A conference was held in 1999 at the Entomological Society of America annual meeting in Atlanta, GA; to review some recent research on the moth. Papers presented at the conference included work on damage assessment (impact) and a review of previous attempts to quantify tip moth damage, interactions of the moth with different forest management practices and the relationship with intensive management, effects of herbicide and insecticide use on tip moth parasitoids, evaluations of different types of insecticides for tip moth control, methods for optimizing chemical control through more precise timing, potential for augmenting tip moth egg parasites by releases of laboratory-reared parasitic wasps, a review of the potential opportunities for using pheromone traps to predict tip moth infestation density and damage and evaluations of different pheromone trap designs and lures.

Keywords: Biological control, chemical control, forest management, growth impact, pheromone traps, pine tip moth, Pinus taeda, Rhyacionia frustrana
