Abstract:The pales weevil, Hylobius pales (Herbst), is a serious pest of Scots pine, Pinus sylvestris L., in the mid-western and eastern States. Chemical control of the pest on seedling loblolly pine trees with soil applications of phorate were successful in greenhouse studies (Werner and Clark 1969). Data are presented here on the translocation, distribution, and persistence of phorate and its oxidation analogues Scots pine seedlings. The biological evaluation of these same treatments for control of the pales weevil was reported by Stevens et al. (1973).
