    These fungi colonize xylem tissue and block water flow within the tree, also causing tree mortality Thatcher and Conner Generally, the emerging beetles fly off to attack another tree Thatcher et al. This aggressive tree killer is a native insect that lives predominantly in the inner bark of pine trees. Some chemical cues by which parasitoids locate trees infested with SPB broods that are in susceptible developmental stages have been determined.

    Practices installed before the landowner is approved for funding are not allowed. This spring emergence represents the primary dispersal phase of SPB, during which beetles often initiate multiple and widespread infestations. Priority will also be given to Limited Resource Landowners. Figure 3.

    Much research continues toward the development of effective methods of utilizing semiochemicals to suppress SPB infestations, but as yet, operational uses are still on the horizon Billings and UptonHayes and StromPayne and Billings Outbreaks Back to Top Outbreaks of this insect tend to be cyclical in occurrence. To assess outbreaks foresters: Deploy traps in strategic locations in the south Jersey area to detect the SPB Use Digital-Aerial Sketchmapping D-ASM in conjunction with traditional aerial photographic interpretation to map existing damage and help to predict potential spread or decline. The insects burrow into the living wood just below the bark and cut off the flow of water and nutrients. In: Coulson, R. These forests can then be monitored more closely or scheduled for management to reduce their susceptibility.

Suppression relies primarily on the removal of infested and nearby trees. SPB feed on phloem tissue where they construct winding S-shaped or serpentine galleries. Technical assistance will be provided to landowners by GFC foresters who will provide and process the applications, evaluate the site, and then determine the steps the landowner should take to expect successful results resource management plan.

Landscape Scale Research Addresses Southern Pine Beetle

The Southern Pine Beetle. When beetle populations are low endemicattacks are generally restricted to senescent, stressed or damaged pines; however, epidemics periodically occur Thatcher et al. The impact of the SPB on the red-cockaded woodpecker is a large concern in southern U.

The aggregation of beetles results in a mass attack over a short period of time Dixon and Payne Authors: Coster, Jack E.

This method is typically applied during times when SPB populations are propagating, and has been extensively applied along the Gulf coast of the United States.

These traps are placed in forested areas where pine is not present or represents a small component of the forest type. Dell, Bugwood. The content is provided for information purposes only.

Historically, Florida has not experienced many destructive SPB episodes probably because of the lack of large contiguous areas of loblolly and shortleaf pine in susceptible stages.The Southern Pine Beetle.
