Notes: Hylobius Weevil Larvae Attack Roots of Young Slash Pines

The full text article is temporarily unavailable.

We apologise for the inconvenience. Please try again later.

Weevil larvae (Hylobius sp.) were found in the root systems of young slash pines (Pinus elliottii Engelm.) in South Georgia. Infested trees died as larvae reached maturity. This type Hylobius infestation has not been previously recorded on southern pines, but resembles attacks by H. rhizophagus Millers et al. in northeastern America. The attacks occurred mainly on pines growing in disturbed soil and might become a problem in southern pine plantations established on prepared sites.
