Spruce Budworm Defoliation Becoming Visible in Mountains BY LAURA PRAMUK, PNF Western spruce budworm, a native western North America insect, is defoliating Douglas-fir, true firs, spruce, and other conifer species in many parts of southern Idaho. Defoliated trees turn reddish- brown, which are quite visible on many hillsides. The insect populations began to increase in 2004 and are now at an outbreak stage in many areas. Aerial surveys in 20H identified almost 1.2 million acres defoliated in southern Idaho. Indications are the amount d r defoliation in 2012 will be similar. The last outbreak of spruce budworm lasted for over 15 years, with considerable fluctuation in mortality each year. The area annually defoliated then ranged from 200,000 to 600,000 acres. Normally, spruce budworm does not kill trees, but may cause them to have reduced growth and dead tops. Smaller trees experience more mortality because larvae drop from the large trees and collect and feed on smaller trees. The more defoliation a tree experiences, the higher the likelihood of mortality. Larg e Douglas-fir trees that have been heavily defoliated for multiple, consecutive years may be more prone to attack by Douglas-fir bark beetle, resulting in mortality. Control options are somewhat limited over larg_e areas. Keeping stands of Douglas-fir and true firs growing vigorously is the best way to reduce the effects of budworm. The only way to reduce defoliation is by killing the budworm larvae. Several insecticides are available for treating individual trees or small sized tree stands, but they are most effective when larvae are small and have just begun to feed, typically in early summer. Private landowners wishing to treat individual trees with budworm infestations should contact their local Idaho Department of Lands office for additional information. The larvae commonly descend from the needles on silk threads and land on smaller, understory trees. In August the adults begin to fly and lay eggs. An abundance of these small, reddish brown mottled moths will soon appear in many areas of southern Idaho. Budworm populations are usually highest and have the most significant effect in certain types of forests. Dense forests thai are on warm and dry sites with poorer vigor are the most likely to be affected by spruce budworm.
