A synthetic pheromone of the western pine shoot borer, Eucosma sonomana Kearfott, has been used
successfully as a 'mating disrupter in northern Idaho and western Montana since 1984. Infestation
levels in treated ponderosa pine plantations declined from an average of 28 percent infested in 1983

Two blends (Natural and Phillips) of the western pine shoot borer pheromone, formulated as Hercon Luretape, were applied to six ponderosa pine plantations in northern Idaho and western Montana in 1984. The treatment was approximately 21.6 grams of pheromone per hectare. Significant reductions in damage have occurred in all treated...

Benomyl and chlorothalonil were tested on 2-0 bareroot ponderosa pine seedlings as a means to reduce impact of Diplodia tip blight at the Fantasy Farms Nursery, Peck, Idaho. Infection levels were not adequate to assess effectiveness of the fungicides. However, techniques were developed which can be used to assess efficacy...
