Brimblecombe, A.R. (1951) The prevention of borer attacks on hoop pine logs. Queensland Journal of Agricultural Science, 8 (4). pp. 69-105.



Five species of Platypodidae and two species of Scolytidae were responsible for damage to felled hoop pine logs confined to the rain-forest in the Killarney district during periods of wet weather. Replicated log protection experiments were conducted, mostly with K55 standard creosote, on a total of 127 logs involving 44,563 super. feet of timber. All non-creosote treatments reduced the intensity of borer attacks but were significantly inferior to creosote.
