Dimilin® is used in gypsy moth control programs because of its low toxicity to nontarget vertebrate species and nonpersistence in the environment. While Dimilin® does not appear to directly endanger birds it can reduce populations of invertebrate food items. At the application rate used in this study Dimilin® can be used in forest insect control programs without causing a significant decrease in the overall size or diversity of breeding bird populations. North. J. Appl. For. 4:37-38, Mar. 1987.
