    Western spruce budworm defoliated area in the Northern Region has differed significantly across three discrete geographic zones during the past decade. Aerially visible defoliation in northern Idaho increased from 1.7 million acres in 1969 to a high of 2.2 million acres in 1974, and declined to none in 1979. Defoliated area in western Montana increased from 1.8 million acres in 1969 to a high of 2.8 million acres in 1972 and declined to 0.6 million acres in 1979. Conversely, defoliated area in eastern Montana fluctuated at low levels between 0.1 and 0.7 million acres between 1969 and 1974, and then rose to a high of 1.6 million acres in 1979. Analysis of defoliation trend, the ratio of acres defoliated in the current year by acres defoliated the prior year, and weather during budworm larval and pupal periods during the past decade revealed the following relationships: Defoliation trend in all three geographic areas varied (a) directly with mean maximum temperature during May, June, and July of the year before, and (b) inversely with frequency of measurable precipitation during May, June, and July of the year before. Based on warm, dry conditions throughout the Region in 1979, we predict a general increase in budworm populations in the Northern Region in 1980.

Outbreaks of western spruce budworm are influenced primarily by climate and weather and, therefore, fluctuate in an irregular and unpredictable manner. In stands which are chronically affected by budworm, outbreaks may be sustained for 25 years or longer.

Inoverha were under attack by the budworm, mostly in the southern interior of the province. Budworm outbreaks may be sustained for 25 years or more.

Annual defoliation of current-year growth for 5 to 8 years will kill the host tree. Defoliation by the spruce budworm is most clearly reflected in the fir's radial growth. The population of mature balsam fir in a forest is greatly reduced by a combination of factors: its shorter lifespan and a great vulnerability to Family: Tortricidae.

Asked JAM EDT. What measures can I take against an infestation of the Western Spruce Budworm moth. My two acre property and surrounding properties are infested here in Indian Mountain and Stagestop. They are even attacking my bristlecones.

This is the first year I have noticed them in the four years I. 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. Page 4 Back to menu Western Spruce Budworm Habitat Types Western spruce budworm defoliation occurs in 46 habitat types described for Montana (Fellin et al.

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.
