Description: The southern pine beetle, Dendroctonus frontalis (Zimmermann) (Coleoptera: Scolytidae) is one of the most serious threats to pine forest health in the South (4,24,29,30). Once a forest stand is infested, there are few options for immediate elimination and isolation of infested trees. The most effective approach to preventing losses from the southern pine beetle (SPB) is through traditional timber management, including thinning and prescribed burning. Nevertheless, many landowners do not undertake these measures.
