The Mountain Pine Beetle is a big problem!



Affecting several areas of the Northwest, the mountain pine beetle is wreaking havoc across northern Colorado. The beetles kill the trees by boring through the bark into the phloem layer on which they feed and in which eggs are laid. Female beetles start attacking the bark, and this invites even more beetles to attack. The trees respond to attack by increasing their resin output in order to discourage or kill the beetles, but the beetles block the tree resin response with their special toxins. Within a few weeks of attack the trees are overwhelmed as water and nutrients have difficulty getting to the phoem layer. Over time, the trees starve to death, and the damage can be easily seen in the form of reddened needles. Entire groves of trees after an outbreak will appear reddish for this reason. Usually, the older trees die first. After particularly long and hot summers, the mountain pine beetle population can increase dramatically, which leads to the deforestation of large areas.

Control of the Pine Beetle

Control options available for managing the mountain pine beetle depend somewhat on the size of the outbreak, the age of the stand, the size of the trees, and the conditions of the site. Insecticides, attractants and deforestation are the only known methods of control. See links below:
