Influence of white pine watering regimes on feeding preferences of spring and fall adults of the white pine weevilPissodes strobi (Peck)

Spring and fall adults of the white pine weevil,Pissodes strobi (Peck), were exposed in no-choice and two-choice tests to bark from water-stressed and non-water-stressed white pine (Pinus strobus L.), which had also been exposed or not exposed to weevil attack.
