      Progress 01/01/03 to 12/31/03 Outputs A manuscript describing the validation of a Douglas-fir beetle hazard rating system was accepted for publication in the Western Journal of Applied Forestry. A multi-year, large scale study to test mass trapping for the Douglas-fir beetle was completed in The results were inconclusive.   reddish bark dust in bark crevices is a sign of the Douglas-fir beetle (Photo: Elizabeth Willhite, ) Healthy trees can withstand a low-level Douglas-fir beetle attack, and in normal circumstances there are rarely enough beetles around to cause concern.

      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.

Both sexes of the Douglas-fir beetle, Dendroctonus pseudotsugae, release limonene with their aggregation pheromones when stimulated by acoustic signals from the opposite sex (Rudinsky et al., ).Limonene, a major constituent of Douglas-fir oleoresin, acts .   This book tries to provide the debaters with scientific data. Many foresters see Douglas-fir as the perfect replacement for Norway spruce which has been suffering from drought stress and bark beetle outbreaks in recent : Jakob Derks.

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 aks tend to be associated with mature Douglas-fir forests (average stand diameters greater than 14 inches at feet from the forest floor) coupled with.

QUICK GUIDE SERIES FM Douglas-fir Beetle About Douglas-fir Beetle Douglas-fir beetle (Dendroctonus pseudotsugae) is the most destructive bark beetle of mature Douglas-fir forests in western North America.

The Douglas-fir beetle appears to occur in two situations: apparently healthy, large-diameter, host stands where isolated, infested dead-tree groups increase to several to a few dozen trees over a few years and then decrease; and in seriously stressed stands such as those suffering from insect defoliation or exposure to fire that did not ruin the phloem tissue.

Douglas-fir beetle definition is - a bark beetle (Dendroctonus pseudotsugae) that is very destructive to Douglas fir and sometimes to western larch.

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. The Douglas-fir beetle (Dendroctonus pseudotsuqae Hopk.) infests and kills Douglas-fir throughout most of its range in western United States British Columbia and Mexico.

Occasionally western larch trees are infested when growing among Douglas-fir under attack. Attacks in standing larch are always unsuccessful, while those in freshly felled larch are usually successful and brood emergence is Cited by: MCH bubble caps can be used to help prevent attack of: Douglas fir beetle (Dendroctonus pseudotsugae) and Spruce beetle (Dendroctonus rufipennis) MCH can be deployed on Douglas-fir and Spruce trees.

It is suitable to use in stands containing significant numbers of trees whether standing, fallen or stumped. 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 black. They bore into the bark of trees and lay eggs in galleriesFile Size: 1MB. 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.

Douglas-Fir Beetle AskedPM EDT Good morning, I recently brought two and a half chords of freshly cut Doug Fir from Yamhill County to my house in Washington County.Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii (Mirb.) Franco) were monitored for 4 years following three wildfires.

Logistic regression analyses were used to develop models predicting the probability of attack by Douglas-fir beetle (Dendroctonus pseudotugae Hopkins, ) and the probability of Douglas-fir mortality within 4 year following fire.
