Spruce Beetles

At only 1/4 inch long, spruce beetles are making a comeback, infesting both live and dead spruce trees in our area, in the largest outbreak since 1997.

Detection & Treatment

A tell-tale sign that beetles are attacking a tree is a reddish-brown dust that appears on the bark and on the ground around the tree, along with a change in the foliage color, where the needles begin to fade to a pale yellow-green and finally a reddish-brown. Keeping the spruce trees healthy is key to treatment. We are able to spray trees to keep them from being infested by the spruce beetles.
