Abstract:

Insects associated with the Sitka spruce weevil,Pissodes strobi (Peck), on Sitka spruce,Picea sitchensis (Bong.) Carr. were sampled at 9 locations in British Columbia. Fourteen species of hymenoptera, 3 diptera, and 1 psocopteran were found associated with the weevil. Samples were dominated by the lonchaeid predator,Lonchaea corticis Taylor, and to a lesser extent by the braconid parasitoid,Allodorus crassigaster (Prov.).
