Abstract

The Eurasian woodwasp, Sirex noctilio Fabricius (Hymenoptera: Siricidae), is an introduced invasive pest in the Great Lakes region of North America. If S. noctilio is introduced to the southeastern U.S., it may cause severe economic and ecological impacts, especially in the extensive pine plantations.
