Hylobius abietis


Interim guidance on the integrated management of Hylobius abietis
A new report outlines the latest guidance on the integrated pest management of the insect Hylobius abietis. It draws on some key findings from an ongoing programme of collaborative forest industry research into alternatives to the use of the insecticide cypermethrin. It also summarises knowledge and guidance on the safe use of the insecticide acetamiprid, which is increasingly being phased in across the UK forest industry as an alternative to cypermethrin.


Scottish Forestry Journal

The journals from 2006 to 2016 have now been digitised and added to the journal database. You can search the archive by subject in the search box at the top right hand corner of this page. Journals from 1854 to 2016 are available.

The Society is most grateful for the financial assistance, provided by The Scottish Forestry Trust, which enabled this project to be completed.
