[Philip M Tuchinsky]. Spruce budworms and relatives are a group of closely related insects in the genus are serious pests of conifers, such as are nearly forty Choristoneura species, and even more subspecies, or forms, with a complexity of variation among populations found throughout much of the United States and Canada, and about again this Class: Insecta.

The western spruce budworm, Choristoneura occidentalis, is the most widely distributed and destructive forest defoliator in western North the Rockies, they most commonly infest Douglas-fir and white fir. Occasionally, they also attack Engelmann spruce, blue. The spruce budworm is a normal part of forest ecosystems in Canada.

However a cyclical surge in population typically occurs every years which can lead to the defoliation of tens of millions. Western spruce budworm is the most widely distributed forest defoliator in western North America.

Budworms have a one-year life cycle and are actually a small moth at full maturity. Here in the West, there can be severe infestations in healthy Douglas-fir, white fir and spruce.

What Is Spruce Budworm. The eastern spruce budworm (Choristoneura fumiferana) is a native insect that causes major damage to Maine’s spruce-fir forests on a regular cycle. Man in competition with the spruce budworm book budworm caterpillars feed on the buds and needles of fir and spruces.

Under normal (endemic) conditions populations of this insect are so low that spruce budworm is hard to find. Spruce budworms handbook: predators of the spruce budworm U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Man in competition with the spruce budworm book State Research Service, - Predation (Biology).

The spruce budworm (Choristoneura fumiferana) is one of the most destructive native insects in the northern spruce and fir forests of the Eastern United States and of the time, the number of budworms remains at a low level.

However, every forty years or so, the population of budworms explodes to huge numbers, devastating the forest and destroying many trees. What is the spruce budworm and where does it come from. The spruce budworm is a native North American insect whose caterpillar measures about 20 to 30 millimeters and is a voracious eater of conifer needles, specifically, those of white, red and black spruce as well as balsam fir.

The eastern spruce budworm is believed to be the most damaging forest insect in Maine and North America. Outbreaks of the insect that kills balsam fir and spruce trees occur every 30 to 60 years.

Severe defoliation already has occurred in southern Quebec; we expect to see outbreak populations of SBW in Maine beginning within the next 3 years.

Choristoneura fumiferana, the eastern spruce budworm, is a species of moth of the family is also commonly referred to as the spruce budworm.

It is one of the most destructive native insects in the northern spruce and fir forests of the eastern United States and range is also the widest of all the budworm species. Eastern spruce budworm Family: Tortricidae.

Predators of the Spruce Budworm by Daniel T. Jennings and Hewlette S. Crawford, Jr.^ Introduction The spruce budworm, Choristoneura fumiferana (Clemens) (Lepidoptera: control, Tortricidae), is the includemost destructive forest insect pest in andeastern North America.

Millions of acres of. Beginning in current-year defoliation was quantified using the Fettes Method on a subset of MFS-sampled L2 sites and additional sites in northern Maine.

This method provides a systematic approach to measuring defoliation. It was employed during the last budworm outbreak in Maine. With an active marketplace of over million items, use the Alibris Advanced Search Page to find any item you are looking for.

Spruce Budworm. Update and Frequently Asked Questions. J Update. The spruce budworm has finished feeding on tree needles for the year in most areas. There are a few larvae still chewing on needles, but most have turned into pupae. In a week or two, small copper colored budworm moths will emerge and begin laying eggs.

In areas. Balsam fir and white spruce are the preferred host species of the spruce budworm. Red, black and Colorado spruce are also suitable host trees. On occasion, tamarack, pine, and hemlock may be fed upon.

In Saskatchewan, spruce budworm feeds on white spruce, balsam fir and to a lesser extent black spruce, as well as the introduced Colorado Size: KB. Spruce budworm Choristoneura fumiferana Order Lepidoptera, Family Tortricidae; tortricids Native pest Host plants: Balsam fir is preferred, but white, red, and black spruces, larch, pine, and western hemlock are also susceptible.

Description: Adult moths are mostly gray, with a wing-span for males of 24 mm and for females of 26 Size: 56KB.

Birds ate spruce budworms throughout the daylight hours. Blackburnian Warblers consumed the most Choristoneura (X = 28 budworms/ha), followed by Cape May Warblers (X = 26 budworms/ha), and grading down to no consumption by some species.

In plots where spruce budworm densities ranged from low to transitional, the entire. spruce budworm is the most destructive pest of spruce and fir forests in North America the larvae are wasteful feeders as they only eat partial needles and then move on to other needles spruce budworm prefers balsam fir, but the name is associated with spruce as white spruce is a more desirable species historically to the forest industry.

The Spruce Budworm Model One of the models discussed in this paper is of interest to us because it involves an insect pest found in northern Minnesota pineries, the spruce budworm (Choristoneura fumiferana).

The model was developed in Canada to describe infestations observed there, but is certainly relevant to northern Minnesota. Spruce Budworm Pheromone Lures David G. Grimble Abstract Four types of spruce budworm pheromone lures were tested to compare field longevity and efficiency.

Biolures with three different pheromone release rates and Silk-PVC lures all caught male budworm moths throughout the moth flight period in proportion to the different release : David G. Grimble. stage. Massive budworm outbreaks occur periodically, destroying hundreds of thousands of hectares of valuable fir and spruce.

In eastern Canada the budworm’s preferred food is balsam fir, white spruce and red spruce. In Manitoba, the budworm feeds primarily on white spruce and balsam fir, and, less frequently, on black spruce.

The Spruce Budworm. Right now Western Montana, Northern Idaho and parts of Southern Canada are in the middle of a massive forest die-off. The culprits are a pair of creepy-crawlies the Pine Beetle and the Spruce Budworm.

Overview of: Spruce budworm outbreak Project summary. Determine the evolution of the spruce budworm outbreak based on a model of the population dynamics in response to predation by birds and carrying capacity of the forest.

Present the results with a summary diagram that show sthe evolution of the outbreak, including how it begins and ends.

Budworm outbreaks may be sustained for 25 years or more. Host trees: Primarily Douglas-fir, with other tree species such as the true firs, larch and to a lesser degree, spruce, also impacted by the western spruce budworm.
