DescriptionThe research objectives were to determine the species composition and seasonal dynamics of pine litter arthropods and examine the effect of insecticide treatments on non-target organisms associated with pine beauty moth (Panolis flammea Schiff.) outbreaks. Representatives of beetles (Coleoptera) were the dominant arthropods collected (65.6% of 20,500). The average numbers of arthropods captured per trap were as follows: 37.03 ± 7.16 in Foray 48 B sprayed plots; 30.45 ± 1.66 in Arrivo sprayed plots; 24.10 ± 3.78 in control (unsprayed) plots.
