    THE ROUNDHEADED PINE beetle, Dendroctonus adjunctus Blandford, is an important bark beetle associated with ponderosa pine, Pinus ponderosa Dougl. ex Laws., in the southwestern United States. Periodic outbreaks of this disturbance agent have caused considerable mortality across the Southwest (Lucht et al. , Massey et al. ).

    Longhorned Beetles/Roundheaded Borers (Coleoptera:Cerambycidae) The beetle family Cerambycidae are known as both longhorned beetles and roundheaded borers, terms that refer to the adult and larval stages of these insects, respectively. The adults (longhorned beetles) are named for the very long antennae typical of the adult.   Accidental and intentional global movement of species has increased the frequency of novel plant–insect interactions. In Patagonia, the European woodwasp, Sirex noctilio, has invaded commercial plantations of North American compared the patterns of resin defenses and S. noctilio-caused mortality at two mixed-species forests near San Carlos de .

In southern Nevada, mature and overmature. Not when one mountain pine beetle joins forces with thousands of others to form an army of forest killers.

In ""The Mountain Pine Beetle: Tiny but Mighty,"" Kay Turnbaugh tells the story of how such a tiny insect has managed to change the landscape of our western forests. With lively text, vivid (and sometimes icky) photographs, plus engaging /5(5).

The roundheaded pine beetle, Dendroctonus adjunctus, is an important bark beetle that attacks and kills various species of pines from Nevada, Utah, and Colorado south to the Southwestern United States its primary host is ponderosa pine, Pinus often occurs in trees in conjunction with the western pine beetle, Dendroctonus brevicomis, and pine.

Effects: Roundheaded pine beetles attack, colonize, and kill trees in the southwestern United States and Mexico. Periodic outbreaks have killed large numbers of ponderosa pine in southern New Mexico and southeastern Arizona.

In16, pole and sawtimber-sized trees were infested on 2, acres near Cloudcroft andpole-sized. The roundheaded pine beetle also referred to as Dendroctonus adjunctus, is a bark beetle which destroys pine trees.

The pest should not be mistaken for the roundheaded borer which is commonly used to describe the Cerambycidae insect family. The insect is a little more slender when compared to the mountain pine beetle and slightly bigger than. The data suggest that stands attacked by the roundheaded pine beetle exhibit poor growth during the last 5 years prior to attack, abundant host.

Roundheaded wood borer beetles attack stressed, dying, or dead trees. There are many species all belonging to the beetle family Cerambycidae. Adult roundheaded wood borers are small to relatively large beetles (1/ 1/2 inches [ mm]) and often have long antennae.

The long antennae give them the name longhorned beetles (fig. Roundheaded Pine Beetle. Roundheaded pine beetle activity has affected approximately 52 percent of the ponderosa pine forest ecosystems in Dolores County since READ MORE. Spruce Bark Beetle. Severe outbreaks continued in portions of the San Juan Mountains, West Elk Mountains and Sawatch Range; the southern reaches of the Sangre de Cristo.

Roundheaded borer. Cerambycidae. Adult cerambycid beetles vary in size and color and are identified most readily by their extremely long antennae, which often are longer than the body. Larvae are white, long, slender, and usually legless.

Roundheaded borers attack recently cut trees or timbers from which bark has not been removed. Roundheaded pine beetles are shiny dark-brown to black insects that attacks the ponderosa pine trees by eating into the moist tissue of the tree, soon enough stressing out the tree and leaving a snag behind.

After examining the results Diameter at Breast Height (dbh) and Lean were significant. This sub-study is part of a larger study done on. Roundheaded pine beetle, along with associated native bark beetles, continued to affect ponderosa pine forests in Dolores County in southwest Colorado.

This insect affec acres in   Size: Larvae up to 3 1/4 inches (80mm) or more. Color: Adult longhorned beetles are medium to large cylindrical beetles, usually brown, reddish brown, or black in color.

They are sometimes mottled or banded with white or gray. Larvae (roundheaded borers) are brown, reddish brown, or black. They are sometimes mottled or banded with white or gray.

Adults are called longhorned beetles. One of the families of beetles with the largest number of species is the Cerambycidae. The adult beetles in this group are called longhorned beetles because of their long antennae.

The immature stage of most longhorned beetles is a woodboring larva called a roundheaded borer. There are hundreds of species of longhorned beetles and many are very common. The roundheaded pine beetle (Dendroctonus adjunctus Blandford [Coleoptera: Curculionidae, Scolytinae]) is an aggressive (tree-killing) bark beetle species that attacks several species of pine.

Characteristics of ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa Dougl. ex Laws.) trees chosen for attack by this beetle were studied in a current outbreak in northern Arizona.

Douglas-fir engraver beetles (Scolytus unispinosus). These kill patches of cambium on the stem. This may cause branch or top kill. Roundheaded wood borers infest the branch collar area and main bole, typically of trees that are dead or dying.

The larvae of roundheaded and other wood-boring beetles are often seen tunneling in logs or firewood. The southern pine beetle has little direct effect on wood properties. Its life is spent primarily in the bark or at the bark/wood interface.

How- ever, the beetle carries with it blue-stain fungi that grow into the wood within hours after beetle attack. Blue-stain fungi help kill trees by disrupting the water- conducting capacity of the sapwood.The roundheaded pine beetle is currently causing increased mortality to ponderosa pine in the southwest.

Roundheaded pine beetle populations have been at outbreak levels in the Sacramento Mountains since the late s (Forest Pest Man-agement Staff ) and in the Pinalenos Mountains in south-ern Arizona since the early s (Wilson ).roundheaded pine beetle that is negatively impacting this forest structure of the ponderosa pine (Pinus pondersoa) forest.

Roundheaded pine beetles are shiny dark-brown to black insects that attacks the ponderosa pine trees by eating into the moist tissue of the tree, soon enough stressing out the tree and leaving a snag behind.
