Control of Lymantria monacha larvae using nuclear polyhedrosis virus



Control of Lymantria monacha larvae using nuclear polyhedrosis virus



Sylwan 125(7/8/9): 105-109



Nuclear polyhedrosis virus (NPV) was applied in 1979-80 by helicopter to Scots pine forests in Poland at 100 ml/ha containing 1.5-3x109 NPV/ml. Mortality started 14-16 days after application and was 60-80% after 3-4 wk. which meant that during a severe attack, larvae are still feeding in large numbers for some time after spraying. Laboratory trials showed that infected larvae consumed only 10-15% less food than healthy ones.
