A large-scale field experiment was conducted to examine the efficacy of 1, 2, and 4% chlorpyriphos and 1,2, and 4% carbaryl for protecting high-value ponderosa pine trees from attack by Dendroctonus brevicomis LeConte. Each of the 510 trees utilized in the experiment was separated by at least 0.4 km. At 1 month, 3 months, and 1 year after insecticide application, D. brevicomis pheromone was attached to the boles of treated and untreated check trees. All six treatments were regarded as effective 1 month after application. At 3 months after application, 1 and 2% chlorpyriphos were regarded as ineffective. One year after application, low mortality of untreated check trees hindered the determination of efficacy of the remaining four treatments. At 3 months and 1 year after application, significantly more Temnochila chlorodia (Mannerheim) were found in catchment traps beneath treated than beneath untreated trees. The best explanation for this is insecticide-induced mortality of T. chlorodia. There were no significant differences in numbers of D. brevicomis or Enocleris lecontei (Wolcott) in the catchment traps.
