Significance and control of attack by the ambrosia beetle Trypodendron lineatum (Oliv.) (Col. Scolytidae) in Argyllshire forests



Significance and control of attack by the ambrosia beetle Trypodendron lineatum (Oliv.) (Col. Scolytidae) in Argyllshire forests



Forestry 35(2): 139-63



Following damage to sawlogs, methods of controlling T. lineatum have been studied. Attack begins in April, reaches a peak in May and then declines rapidly, becoming negligible after August. Trees felled between November and January are more susceptible, but few logs left at stump are attacked. Damage is much more widespread in logs stacked in the forest or at the mill. Good protection can be provided economically by spraying stacked timber with an emulsion of 0.75% gamma BHC.
