Abstract:Pales weevil, Hylobius pales (Herbst), adults feed on the bark and kill shoots of Scotch pine, Pinus sylvestris (L.), eastern white pine, P. strobus L., and Douglas-fir, Pseudotsuga menziesii (Mirb.) Franco. The white pine and Douglas-fir partially recovered before harvest by dropping most of the injured shoots. Profit losses of Scotch pine incurred because weevil feeding injury depended largely upon the marketing procedure used; a wholesale grower lost 19%, a front-yard retailer lost 9%, and a choose-and-cut grower had a negligible loss.
