Host: Douglas-fir Figure Egg and larval galleries of Douglas-fir beetle. Note larval galleries occur in alternating groups. Symptoms/Signs: Reddish-orange frass is the first sign that a tree has been attacked.

At times, the most evident sign of attack is the clear resin exuding from entrance holes on the upper portions of the stem. Douglas-fir, but will kill large areas of healthy timber during epidemics.

Usually has a one-year life cycle. Douglas-fir beetle book Overwintering adults emerge from April to July. Overwintering larvae mature and emerge as adults in July and August.

Adults are dark brown to black with reddish wing covers and are to mm long. Adults carry spores of a blue-stain. 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.

Publication date Pages: Several insects attack Douglas-fir, but the Douglas-fir beetle is the most important. Outbreaks usually occur in windthrown, fire-killed or felled timber. Timber in any of the conditions listed should be removed as quickly as possible.

Periodic outbreaks of Douglas-fir tussock moths may cause serious damage. Dendroctonus pseudotsugae, the Douglas-fir beetle, is a species of bark beetle found in western North America. Three subspecies exist that correspond to the subspecies of beetles also infest downed Larch trees.

Outbreaks often occur in conjunction with drought, root rot diseases, overcrowding, damage by insects that damage foliage, and environmental : Curculionidae. Dendroctonus is a genus of bark includes several species notorious for destroying trees in the forests of North : Insecta.

Wood borers had a greater influence on log decomposition than Douglas-fir beetles. Frass produced by the Douglas-fir beetle contributed very little to litter fall and nutrient cycling. After 10 years there was a net release of N, P, K, Ca, and Mn from decomposing logs. Only Mg was immobilized in large-diameter by: COVID Resources.

It is suitable to use in stands containing significant numbers of trees whether standing, fallen or stumped.

The Douglas-fir pole beetle, Pseudohylesinus nebulosus fills a similar niche in smaller diameter Douglas-fir. The insect is widespread and often found in areas infested with Douglas-fir beetle, sometimes in the same tree. Life History and Habits. Forest Health Fact Sheet March Both Douglas-fir pole beetle and Douglas-fir engraver* beetle are distributed across most of the range of Douglas-fir.

Forest Service: Contributor: United States. Forest Service: Published: Unlike the Douglas-fir beetle (Dendroctonus pseudotsugae), which results in the crown of large diameter trees turning from green to red all at once, the species causing this damage produces a patchy pattern of red branches throughout the crown.

As drought conditions persist, other bark beetle and wood borer species populations are also increasing. Douglas-fir beetle (Dendroctonus pseudotsugae) infestations frequently result from disturbance events that create large volumes of weakened Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii) trees.

Douglas fir trees in particular have been heavily affected by these drought conditions, which showed similar — though less significant — signs of stress in and Some trees seem to be dying from drought alone.

It’s this stress and easy access into the trees that has allowed beetle populations to grow larger than seen in recent years. 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.

Abstract. The fir engraver beetle, Scolytus ventralis LeConte (Coleoptera: Scolytidae), was first described from two specimens collected at Vancouver, Washington, but the species has been subsequently recorded throughout the western United States and British Columbia. 20,55 Its primary hosts are true firs, Abies; specifically white fir (A.
