Prevention of Pine Wilt of Scots Pine with Systemic Injections of Abamectin

2004 | Ned Tisserat, T. Todd, R. James, Kansas State University
Avermectins are macro cyclic lactones that have insecticidal and nematicidal properties. The objective of this project is to determine whether abamectin, a member of the avermectin family (sold as Avid), has nematicidal properties and can be used in Scots pine to protect against pine wilt disease.
