Abstract:Dichlorvos in fuel oil (No.2 diesel) applied as a spray to the bark of infested bolts of loblolly pine, Pinus taeda L., caused significant mortality of Ips grandicollis (Eichhoff), I. calligraphus (Germar), and I. avulsus Eichhoff. Mortality obtained with dichlorvos at concentrations as low as 1/16% was equal to that resulting from the application of ¼% benzene hexachloride (BRC) in fuel oil, a standard recommended treatment for Ips control. Fuel oil alone caused significant Ips mortality but was less effective than the BHC-oil or dichlorvos-oil treatments. All insecticidal treatments, including fuel oil, caused significant mortality of associated insect species.
