Probability of damage to sitka spruce by the sitka spruce weevil pissodes strobi



Probability of damage to sitka spruce by the sitka spruce weevil pissodes strobi



Journal of the Entomological Society of British Columbia 86: 48-54



A nine-year record of attacks of Sitka spruce, Picea sitchensis (Bong.) Carr., by the Sitka spruce weevil (= white pine weevil), Pissodes strobi (Peck), was analyzed to determine the probability of attack on a tree based on the length of its terminal leader. Equations describing the relationship were developed. Tall trees with long leaders had higher rates of attack than short trees with short leaders.
