However, the mean needle temperatures of infested and noninfested trees were
usually within 1°C of each other. Needle temperatures were significantly higher
on the east sides than on the west sides of both infested and noninfested spruce
in the morning and higher on the west sides in the afternoon. infested trees
produced new needles the summer following beetle attack. Most needles were
stripped from the infested trees during thunderstorms two summers after beetle
attack.

Because the possibility of creating new infestations substantial distances apart
within the contiguous forest is remote, the infestation of ornamental and
landscape trees in cities far removed from natural forests is thought to result
primarily from transportation of infested logs for use as firewood. MPB-killed trees
are commonly used for firewood because the wood is well dried and burns
readily. Firewood cutters usually do not discriminate between MPB-killed trees in
which the beetles still ...

Strictly speaking, delusory parasitosis is the mistaken belief that one's body is
infested, so what if a person is convinced that his or her home is infested? A too
—clever entomologist called this condition “delusory cleptoparasitosis.”41 A
cleptoparasite steals resources that its host has collected or stored. Some of the
best—known cases of cleptoparasitism involve a bee or wasp infesting the home
of another species by laying eggs in its nest. The entomologist's term hasn't
caught on, ...

Optimum constant temperature for complete development is 68°F (Amman and
Cole 1983), between 75 and 80° F (Safranyik and Whitney 1985), and between
73 and 75° F (Bentz et al. 1991). How MPB larvae develop under variable
temperatures in naturally infested trees may be quite different compared to their
development under constant temperatures in the laboratory. Temperatures within
the phloem of infested trees are seldom constant and the larvae can be exposed
to a range ...

The share of land infested by Striga is calculated by determining the area of land
under maize affected by Striga divided by the total land under maize. Figure 24
shows the distribution of Striga in Malawi and Annex XVII shows this for the entire
region. In Malawi, the situation is rather severe where almost the entire targeted
area is facing Striga on more than 40% of land under maize plots. In the south
there are a few EPAs that seem to escape the threat, but considering the fact that
they ...
