In 8 experiments with 250 larvae of Rhyacionia buoliana placed on watered and non-watered shoots of Pinus contorta, a significantly higher percentage of successful larval borings was found on non-watered shoots. The growth rate of larvae seemed to be higher on the drier shoots. The results underline the increased risk of heavy infestations following drought years, give a reason for the rather frequent infestations found on poor soils, and may be used in Denmark as an important parameter for prognoses.
