Abstract:Organochlorine, carbamate, and organophosphorus insecticides, mixed with water or kerosene, were applied to stumps of Pinus sylvestris L. to prevent development of larvae of pales weevil, Hylobius pales (Herbst), and northern pine weevil,Pissodes approximatus Hopkins. Carbofuran in water or kerosene and chlorpyrifos and lindane in kerosene essentially eliminated weevil activity and survival in stumps. Our method for evaluating treatment effectiveness was inexpensive and reliable.
