DescriptionThe pinewood nematode (PUTN) (Bursaphelenchus xylophilus), the causal agent of pine wilt disease, has been intercepted in pine chips, unseasoned pine lumber, and wood packing material (WPM). Likewise, the PWN's insect vectors, Monochamus spp. (pine sawyers), have been found in pallets, crates and dunnage. The PWN, which is native to North America, is transmitted to recently killed conifers or freshly felled logs during egg-laying of the insect vector (aka "secondary transmission"). It is through secondary transmission that the PWN gets into the wood transport system.
