Abstract:Methyl bromide fumigation of elm wood collected during sanitation cuttings for Dutch elm disease control was highly effective in destroying within-tree broods of Scolytus multistriatus (Marsham). Logs which were uninfested before fumigation were only weakly attractive to S. multistriatus, and small broods were produced.
