    Description

    Propwash treatments from a low-flying Bell 47-G2 helicopter dislodged few spruce budworm larvae and pupae from host balsam-fir trees. After propwash treatments, both larval-pupal densities on branch samples and in drop-tray collections near the ground were not significantly different between treated and control plots. Significantly more larvae were found in the lower crowns of treated trees, possibly indicating a downward shift in the larval population due to treatment. Residual parasitized larvae was 15.9 percent on treated trees and 14.6 percent on control trees.
