Abstract:32p adequately radiotagged Dendroctonus frontalis Zimmermann; 87% were detected with a stationary counter after 9 days. 35S was less effective. Seventy-four % of the beetles tagged with 32p were detected with a portable ratemeter, whereas only 34% were detectable when tagged with 35S. A portable ratemeter is practical for locating dispersed beetles in the field.
