Six insecticides were tested on southern pine beetle, Dendroctonus frontalis Zimmerman, to determine effects on established brood and ability to prevent attacks of Ips engraver beetles. The insecticides were: lindane as a reference; 2 carbamate insecticides, propoxur and carbaryl; and 3 organophosphates, acephate, phosmet, and diazinon. Only lindane significantly reduced established southern pine beetle broods. Phosmet caused high mortality of adult beetles within 24 h after emergence from treated pines. Lindane, propoxur, and carbaryl were effective in preventing Ips grandicollis Eichoff and I. calligraphus Germar attacks on loblolly pine logs.
