Plain Language Summary
The spruce budworm, Choristoneura fumiferana (Clem.), is an economically significant forest pest in Canada, for which improved control methods are sought. Nucleopolyhedrovirus use would be an improvement by reducing environmental impact, but is not commercially feasible due to high propagation cost and dose requirement.
