DescriptionThe past few years have seen increased interest in and use of microbial agents for the control of destructive forest insects. One of the most successful applications of this control method has been the use of the polyhedral virus disease of the European pine sawfly, Neodiprion sertifer (Geoff.). Control of this insect by its specific pathogen has been fully as satisfactory as chemical control, and less expensive.
