Summary: Abstract only: As the deadline for phasing out the use of methyl bromide as a fumigant approaches, alternative fumigants are being evaluated. Sulfuryl fluoride has emerged as a promising alternative and is gaining increasing acceptance in Europe. This study showed that sulfuryl fluoride was an effective fumigant for the control of Arhopalus tristis adults at the lowest concentration tested (15 g/m(3)), while 120 g/m(3) was required for full control of A. tristis eggs. Sulfuryl fluoride also gave total control of Hylastes ater adults and larvae at 15 g/m(3). Sulfuryl fluoride showed potential to control the eight fungi tested in this study, with a concentration level of at least 30 g/m(3) required for full control of the eight fungi tested.

Summary: Abstract only: Thirteen scolytid species are listed based on the samples collected from pines located in the Sierra de los Filabres mountain range (Almer�a, southern Spain), 6 of them are believed to be first records for the province. The study is based both on the direct capture of the specimens from branches or trunks and with the use of sticky bait traps set on trunks. Analyses are made of their abundance and phenology, and on their relationships with the tree hosts and on the altitude.
