Title: Injections of Emamectin Benzoate protect Engelmann Spruce from mortality attributed to Spruce Beetle (Coleoptera: Curculionidae) for two years

Author: Fettig, Christopher J.; Blackford, Darren C.; Grosman, Donald M.; Munson, A. Steven;

Date: 2017

Source: Journal of Entomological Science

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description:

In the western United States, protection of individual conifers from bark beetles typically involves liquid formulations of insecticides applied to the tree bole. Researchers attempting to find safer, more portable, and longer-lasting alternatives have evaluated injecting systemic insecticides directly into the tree.
