ABSTRACT

The efficacy of ethanedinitrile (EDN, syn. cyanogen, EDN FumigasŪ) for the control of burnt pine longhorn beetle (Arhopalus ferus (Mulsant)) adults was tested using a 12.6 g/m3. The results demonstrate that ethanedinitrile is a potential phytosanitary alternative to methyl bromide for disinfesting burnt pine longhorn adults from sawn timber exported from New Zealand.

Keywords: fumigation, burnt pine longhorn beetle, Pinus radiata D. Don, quarantine treatments.
