Bark beetles of the genus Dendroctonus inflict serious damage in North American coniferous forests. Biological control, which has never been seriously attempted with bark beetles in the United States, should be reconsidered in light of results disclosed here. Impact of indigenous associates is discussed, as well as previous, unsuccessful attempts to introduce exotic enemies. Potential of insect enemies of allied pests is considered in light of Pimentel's theory of "new associations… CONTINUE READING
