Second broods of <i>Pissodes strobi</i> (Coleoptera: Curculionidae) in previously attacked leaders of Interior spruce
Keywords:<i>Pissodes strobi</i>, Coleoptera, Curculionidae
AbstractOviposition and successful brood production by spruce weevil, <i>Pissodes strobi</i>, were observed below the previous year’s attacked, dead leader in as many as 19.5 percent of current attacked trees in a 15-year-old plantation of interior spruce. This occurrence may have significant impacts upon weevil survey and control programmes and, ultimately, the regime under which the stand will be managed.
