A few additional items of information about this pest have now become available. The mite appears to be rather widely distributed and seems to be carried over short distances by the wind. The carriage by man of cut branches and young trees seems to account for its sudden appearance in new localities. Spraying has been fairly successful on a small scale, but careful reforestation seems to promise the only permanent cure, providing only clean young trees are planted after previous removal of all infested pines.
