Field tests demonstrated that 1.25% lindane emulsion, with or without a penetrant, remained effective against the western pine beetle, Dendroctonus breviromis Leconte, for 6 months after application to infested logs of ponderosa pine, Pinus ponderosa Lawson. Greater than 98% reduction of the target population was achieved. Smaller tests indicated these sprays are effective also against the Jeffrey pine beetle, D. jeffreyi Hopkins; the fir engraver scolytus ventralis Leconte; and California f1alheaded borer, Melanophila californica Van Dyke.
