Abstract

Pine oil effectively reduced feeding by the white pine weevil, Pissodes strobi Peck, in a laboratory feeding bioassay utilizing agar discs containing dry, powdered bark of its host Sitka spruce, Picea sitchensis (Bong.) Carr. Possible utilization of pine oil under field conditions is discussed.

Au laboratoire, dans un bio-essai réalisé à l'aide de disques de gélose contenant de l'écorce sèche, en poudre, de l'épinette de Sitka, Picea sitchensis (Bong.) Carr., hôte favori du charançon du pin blanc, Pissodes strobi Peck, l'huile de pin s'est révélée efficace pour réduire l'appétit de ce ravageur. La possibilité d'utiliser l'huile de pin en conditions réelles est examinée.
