Shoot feeding and overwintering in the lesser pine sheet beetle Tomicus minor (Col., Scolytidae) in north-west Spain
Journal of Applied Entomology - Zeitschrift für angewandte Entomologie 123 (6), 321-327
Abstract: During 1991, 1992, and, 1993 a study on shoot feeding, overwintering and the presence of Tomicus minor inside pine shoots was carried out in the province of León (NW Spain). This paper deals with the duration of these processes, overwintering sites and pine shoot feeding characteristics: age, diameter, length, occurrence of exit holes, multiple attacks and length of the burrowed tunnels. It also refers to the degree of shoot occupation, sex-ratio and detected adult mortality.
