The mountain pine beetle (Dendroctonus ponderosae) is native to British Columbia and the mountain regions of the western United States. While this beetle has invaded Alberta before, 2006 was the first year on record that it made it to northern Alberta.
Adult beetles are rather stout, black cylindrical beetles 4 to 7.5 mm long. Antennae are small, elbowed and have a flattened club.
Primarily mature lodgepole pine; however, it attacks and kills all species of tree-form pines.
Although mature trees are preferred, during outbreaks all sizes of pine trees are at risk.
When the beetles are flying they can spread from infested pine trees, logs or firewood to your pine trees. They fly from July to September.
The City of Grande Prairie conducts a Red Tree Survey
each year to find and remove all City owned
pine trees killed by the mountain pine beetle before
the beetles emerge and infest neighbouring trees.
