Influence of the vitality of Norway spruce (Picea abies) and silver fir (Abies alba) on the resistance of construction timber to larvae of the house longhorn (Hylotrupes bajulus)



Influence of the vitality of Norway spruce (Picea abies) and silver fir (Abies alba) on the resistance of construction timber to larvae of the house longhorn (Hylotrupes bajulus)



Material und Organismen 24(2): 93-105



Norway spruce and silver fir trees in Switzerland classed as 'healthy' or 'dying' were felled, and wood samples were prepared from them and exposed to attack by H. bajulus in the laboratory. The results showed that wood resistance to H. bajulus (indicated by retardation of larval development) increased with decreasing tree vitality. Spruce was more resistant to the larvae than fir.
