BARK-BEETLES INFESTING THE DOUGLAS FIR By WILLARD JOSEPH CHAMBERLIN Assistant in Entomology INTRODUCTION There is in the United States at the present time about 2, billion feet of standing coniferous timber, of which about 30%, or billion feet, is Douglas Fir.

If -we eliminate that vast portion of our country. You do not have access to any existing collections. You may create a new by: 8. Douglas-fir beetle is the most destructive bark beetle attacking Douglas-fir in the Northern Region. Outbreaks develop in host trees following stand disturbances such as windthrow, fire, drought, or severe defoliation.

Stands with extensive amounts of root disease may also predispose trees to beetle attack. Pest Status: This species is the most important bark beetle attacking Douglas-fir throughout the range of this tree in North America.

The beetle usually breeds in felled, injured or diseased trees. The beetle usually breeds in felled, injured or diseased trees. Douglas-fir under attack. Attacks in stand-ing larch are always unsuccessful, while those in freshly felled larch are usually successful and brood emergence is equiva-lent to that in Douglas-fir.

Douglas-fir beetles normally kill small groups of trees, but during outbreaks tree groups are not uncommon (fig. 1).File Size: KB. Adult Douglas-fir beetles are dark brown to black with reddish wing covers, and are tiny (about to 7 millimetres long). The life cycle is usually one year, and two broods may be produced.

Biology of the Douglas-fir beetle (PDF) Distribution. Native to North America, this insect is found throughout the range of the Douglas-fir, its principal host. Bark beetles B ark beetles generally attack large, mature trees. The Douglas-fir beetle prefers felled trees, slash, stumps, and windfall as well as trees that have been damaged or stressed by factors such as the urban environ-ment, defoliators, or root disease.

Adult Douglas-fir beetles are small, 4—7 mm, cylindrical, and usually brown or Size: 1MB. Douglas-fir beetles typically take one year to complete their life cycle. Over-wintering takes place beneath the bark of the tree in which they matured for the previous 12 months.

Adults emerge from their Bark-beetles infesting the Douglas fir book tree and infest susceptible trees typically during late April to mid-June when ambient air temperature exceeds approximately 18ºC or 64ºF. trees. Tolko felled the trap trees before the Douglas -fir bark beetle s emerged in the spring of (see Figure 1 for Douglas-fir bark beetle life cycle).

The trap trees were very successful at capturing the Douglas-fir bark beetles. Tolko established cutting authority for all the standard cutting permit cutblocks by early DecemberFile Size: KB.

Bark Beetles: Biology and Ecology of Native and Invasive Species provides a thorough discussion of these economically important pests of coniferous and broadleaf trees and their importance in agriculture. It is the first book in Bark-beetles infesting the Douglas fir book market solely dedicated to this important group of insects, and contains 15 chapters on natural history and ecology, morphology, taxonomy and.

Those driving highways in South Puget Sound and lowlands around Blewett, Sherman, or White passes will likely spot the damage to Douglas-fir trees. “Bark beetle infestation is a visible manifestation of drought conditions, stressed trees, and unhealthy forestland,” said Commissioner of Public Lands Hilary Franz.

Douglas-fir beetle (Dendroctonus pseudotsugae) is the most destructive bark beetle of mature Douglas-fir forests in western North America.

Douglas-fir beetle (Dendroctonus pseudotsugae), another close relative of the spruce beetle and mountain pine beetle, is an important native bark beetle of mature Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii) forests across most of the West. As with other bark beetles, the key to limiting populations of Douglas-fir beetles is to provide good growing conditions for host trees.

Because damaged hosts (fire kills, windthrown trees, broken trees, logging slash) are very important in the population dynamics of these beetles, it is important to salvage such material promptly if avoiding infestation of surrounding trees is a.

Episodic outbreaks of bark beetles are attributed to poor forest practices, drought conditions, and mild winters. Much research has gone into managing Mountain Pine beetle, Douglas–fir beetle, Spruce beetle, Southern Pine beetle and other bark beetles using semiochemicals.

This video covers diagnosis of bark beetles specific to Douglas-fir and true fir and is part of a 3-part bark beetle series that includes an introduction to diagnosis of bark beetles and diagnosis. This video is an introduction to diagnosing bark beetle attacks in Oregon forests and is part of a 3-part bark beetle video series that includes diagnosis of bark beetles specific to Douglas-fir.

Gerald Cordeiro, a forest development manager with Kalesnikoff Lumber, first alerted Nelson city council to the infestation in October   A conceptual model of Douglas-fir bark beetle (Dendroctonus pseudotsugae) dynamics and associated host tree mortality across multiple spatial and temporal scales was developed, then used to guide a study of the association between the occurrence of beetle- killed trees and factors that might render trees more susceptible to attack.

Long-term records of Cited by: bark beetles, these species can kill healthy trees and have the capacity to cause landscape-scale tree mortality (table 1). Host selection and colonization behavior by bark beetles are complex processes that involve both long- and short-range behavioral components (Graves et al.

) with multiple thresholds and rapid feedback (Raffa et al. ).Cited by: bark beetle species start flying in spring. Douglas-fir beetle starts flying generally around April. Evidence of Douglas-fir beetle infestation includes streaming pitch on the trunk and/or small piles of orange-tan boring dust (frass) in bark crevices.

Stands that may be susceptible to Douglas-fir beetle attack are those with >10” diameter. Douglas-fir beetle (Dendroctonus pseudotsugae) infestations frequently result from disturbance events that create large volumes of weakened Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii) trees.

Although research has focused on measuring and predicting the amount of tree mortality caused by Douglas-fir beetle infestations following disturbance events, there has been an inadequate Author: J.

While the Douglas-fir tussock moth prefers Douglas-firs, it can also attack blue spruce and other firs in urban settings. Since the tussock moth likes to stays put, trees tend to be attacked yearly until they are considerably damaged. You can first spot them in the late spring, when the larvae begin feeding on new needles.

Douglas-fir is generally the most susceptible tree in western Oregon to bark beetle outbreaks after storm or wind events. Aerial survey records indicate that there is often a direct increase in Douglas-fir mortality following significant wind events, but a similar pattern has not been observed for true firs, except in periods of sustained drought.

Douglas Fir is a popular Christmas tree, mostly because it is typically less expensive than other species. Names: David Douglas, the Scottish botanist, is honored in the common name for Douglas Fir. Another Scott, Archibald Menzies, is honored by the scientific name, menziesii.

The genus name, Pseudotsuga, means "false hemlock." Botanists often. Female Douglas-fir beetles initiate an attack in the spring when ambient air temperature exceeds approximately 18ºC (65ºF). They are about mm (1/6 – 1/3″) long when they bore into the outer bark and through into the inner bark on the host tree.

By August79% of the Douglas-fir had been infested by bark beetles (primarily by the Douglas-fir beetle) and wood borers; 62% of the lodgepole pine were infested (primarily by the pine engraver); 94% of the 17 Engelmann spruce were infested (primarily by the spruce beetle); and 71% of the 17 subalpine fir were infested (primarily Cited by:   The Department of Natural Resources says they have received an uncharacteristically high number of reports of dead and dying Douglas-fir trees in Washington.
