Part of our early intervention strategy involves testing a spruce budworm pheromone simulant. On July 9th, the final application of dry pheromone flakes was made on two 500 hectare blocks south of Campbellton, New Brunswick. This treatment tests how well a spruce budworm pheromone simulant can disrupt the budworm’s mating cycle, and thus reduce population numbers.
