Abstract

The threat to U.S. and North American forests posed by Sirex noctilio and its symbiotic fungal partner, Amylostereum areolatum, is expected to be significant in the coming decade. Feeding habits of insect pests present a reasonable target for managing them. Complete knowledge of S. noctilio larval nutrition and digestion is critical but perhaps underused information in controlling them.
