Mark record


Lodgepole pine trees which had been naturally attacked by mountain pine beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae Hopk.) were baited with pine engraver (Ips pini Say) pheromone in August and September and the effect on mountain pine beetle brood production was evaluated compared to unbaited controls at four heights. Both bait treatments resulted in significant overall reduction of emerging mountain pine beetles.
