Infestations by Insects and Mites in Forests and Other Woody Growths in 1973 [link]Paper  abstract   bibtex   
[Summary] As usual most data for this annual survey of insect and mite pests in forests and other woody growths were supplied by persons located in different parts of the country and mostly professionally interested in the health of their crops. The data are summarized in tables 1 and 2. The insect species marked with -f were found in coniferous trees felled by the gales of November 13, 1972 and of April 2, 1973. Damage by the pine shoot-beetle, Tomicus piniperda L., known as the most dangerous insect in pine stands after gale disasters, was less serious than expected. This was mainly due to precautional measures. The American timber beetle, Gnathotrichus materiarius Fitch, new to the Netherlands in 1965, now appeared in larger numbers than the common pinhole borer Xyloterus lineatus Oliv. in certain areas. Its range, first limited to the provinces of Guelders and Utrecht, now extends to the provinces of Noord- Brabant, Overijsel and Drente. The outbreaks of the brown-tail moth, Euproctis chrysorrhoea L., in our southern provinces, which started in 1968, continued at the same level. In some inhabited areas control measures were carried out with preparations of Bacillus thuringiensis and the chemicals Gardona and Nexion. The latter are relatively harmless to human beings. The results with all these products were reported as satisfactory.
