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.

Life History Throughout most of its range, the western spruce budworm File Size: KB. Since that year, infestations have frequently been reported in western Canada. The budworm was first recorded in in the United States, in Oregon. However, it was not initially recognized as a serious threat to coniferous forests in the western U.S.

In Atlantic Canada, the spruce budworm problem was noted as early as Class: Insecta. Throughout most of its range, the western spruce budworm completes one cycle of development from egg to adult within 12 months.

Moths emerge from pupal cases usually in late July or early August; in the southern Rockies, adults often begin emerging in early July. The adults mate, and within 7 to 10 days, the female deposits her eggs and then : Insecta.

Western spruce budworm outbreaks may result in significant modification of susceptible stands by reducing tree density and cover. Losses of existing cover may degrade the quality of habitat available for some wildlife species such as the northern spotted owl, and associated fuel accumulations may increase the risk of catastrophic wildfire.

A spruce is a tree of the genus Picea / p aɪ ˈ s iː ə /, a genus of about 35 species of coniferous evergreen trees in the family Pinaceae, found in the northern temperate and boreal regions of the Earth. Picea is the sole genus in the subfamily s are large trees, from about 20–60 m (about 60– ft) tall when mature, and have whorled branches and conical : Tracheophytes.

The western spruce budworm, Choristoneura occidentalis Freeman, is the most widely distributed and destructive defoliator of coniferous forests in Western North America.

It is one of nearly a dozen Choristoneura species, subspecies, or forms found throughout much of the United States and Canada. For more information on budworm biology, view Forest Insect & Disease Leaflet Western.

Relative to the s Spruce Budworm Infestation When an outbreak of the eastern spruce budworm (Choristoneura fumiferana) (Clem.) began in the boreal forests of eastern Canada and the bordering United States in the late s,changes of immense consequence to the forests and their inhabitants were set in ,the vastness and isolationFile Size: 1MB.

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 Western spruce budworm in the Northern Region book Colorado Size: KB.

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.

This review is restricted largely to predators of Choristoneura fumiferana, though reference is made to the jack pine budworm (C pinus Freeman) and the western spruce budworm (C occiden- talis Freeman).

We have taken the life-table approach, presenting what is known. 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.

Retrieved on Fir (Abies)-Spruce budworm (Western) Choristoneura occidentalis. Pest description and damage Adult moths are mottled orange-brown and have a wingspan up to 1 inch.

The larvae are typically green to brown with a darker head and white tubercles in later stages. They grow to approximately 1 inch in length. Western spruce budworm outbreaks are often decades long in the interior West and defoliate extensive areas, which could give a visual impression that trees are dead and a serious fire hazard.

However, their impact on fire behavior is poorly understood, and mortality levels are low. The spruce budworm has been in the area for decades, forestry experts say.

S.W., Albuquerque, New Mexico ABSTRACT. Western spruce budworm, Choristoneura occidentalis Freeman (Tor­ tricidae), is an important pest of Douglas-fir and white fir in the southwestern United States. Abstract.

The spruce budworm, Choristoneura fumiferana (Clemens), (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae) was first described from specimens collected in Virginia, 17 but this native insect occurs primarily in the northern boreal forest from Newfoundland west to the McKenzie River near 66°N.

53 The most extensive and destructive outbreaks have occurred in the maritime provinces (New Brunswick, Nova Scotia Cited by: Spruce budworm is a native moth that can have a serious impact on our spruce-fir forests in northern New Hampshire. The larvae feed on spruce and fir needles.

Typically the budworm populations increase to a peak and then collapse in a year cycle.

This finding contrasts with results from shorter time—scale studies conducted in northwestern U.S. and Canada (western spruce budworm) and eastern Canada (spruce budworm C.

fumiferana), where low precipitation and/or warmer temperatures were generally associated with by: 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, before dropping back.

The western spruce budworm is a damaging defoliator in British Columbia. Budworm feeding damage includes killing of mined buds by early-instar larvae and stripping of the current year's foliage primarily in the upper crown by mid- to late-instar larvae.

Budworms often consume only parts of needles and chew them off at their bases. This book is a synthesis of current knowledge about the insect and its hosts.

It summarizes most of the known information on the western spruce budworm and provides background for the recommendations contained in two management books: Managin f^ Trees and Stands Susceptible to Western Spruce Budworm, and.
