Title: Low concentration of lindane plus induced attraction traps mountain pine beetle

Author: Smith, Richard H.

Date:  1976

Source: Res. Note PSW-RN-316. Berkeley, CA: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Pacific Southwest Forest and Range Experiment Station. 6 p

Station ID: RN-PSW-316

Description: Mountain pine beetles were induced to attack lodgepole pine sprayed with 0.2 percent or 0.3 percent lindane emulsion. Large numbers of beetles were killed and fell into traps at the base of the tree. The few successfully attacking beetles caused the sprayed trees to remain attractive to beetles for about two months. The incidence of attacked trees in the immediate area of the sprayed trees was apparently reduced.

Keywords: mountain pine beetle; lodgepole pine; lindane; pheromones
