Autumn Spraying of Decked Pine Sawlogs to Prevent Insect Damage
Abstract:In the autumn, all exposed surfaces of a large deck of recently cut sawlogs of eastern white pine (Pious strobus L.) were thoroughly sprayed, by hydraulic sprayer, with a benzene hexachloride (BHC) emulsion. The spray consisted of a commercially available 11.7 percent gamma isomer content BHC emulsifiable liquid concentrate (one pound of gamma isomer per gallon) diluted in water to 0.4 percent gamma content by volume. This treatment gave complete protection the following spring and summer against all wood-boring insect pests of unseasoned pine logs outdoors.
