Be on the lookout for White Pine Weevil

16 Mar 2012 7:25 AM | Anonymous
It has been a warm winter; soils with good sun exposure may already have white pine weevil adults emerging from their overwintering sites.  In those sunny sites, look for adults flying on sunny days near the leaders of host trees (many more than white pine, find a list here:
http://www.maine.gov/doc/mfs/wpw08.htm).  Also look for telltale resin droplets in the same locations.
