Life History of the Spruce Budworm The spruce budworm has four life stages: egg, larva, pupa, and adult. The adult stage is a moth with a wingspan of about three-quarters of an inch sixth(2 cm). The female moths lay their eggs in masses on needles of host trees in mid-July to early August. The number of eggs per mass varies considerably but.

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.

The clearest epidemiological pattern was the increase in the rate of mortality caused by ChocNPV observed at the greatest local densities of western spruce budworm ().Nonetheless, population densities must be very high (> budworm per kg foliage or approximately 30 budworm per cm branch tip) for the likelihood of ChocNPV mortality to reliably exceed even Figure 3.—Egg mass of the western spruce budworm laid on Douglas-fir needle.

Presents a sequential plan for sampling populations of Choristoneura occidentalis on Pseudotsuga menziesii in the central and southern Rocky Mts. Numbers of new egg masses per in.

branch are used to classify infestations in 4 classes corresponding to the degrees of defoliation to be expected in the next season.

The use of the sequential plan and its operational efficiency are discussed. Egg recruitment quantifies the relative importance of realized fecundity and migration rates in the population dynamics of highly mobile insects.

We develop here a formal context upon which to base the measurement and interpretation of egg recruitment in population dynamics of eastern and western spruce budworms, two geographically separated species that share a very similar ecology. The last major spruce budworm outbreak defoliated over 58 million hectares in the s–s, and caused 32–43 million m 3 /year of timber volume losses from toin Canada.

Management to deal with spruce budworm outbreaks has emphasized forest protection, spraying registered insecticides to prevent defoliation and keep trees alive.

Colbert, Katharine Sheehan3, and Nicholas L. Crookston4 AbstractA system of computer models is being developed to assist forest managers and planners in making decisions about western spruce budworm, an important defoliator of western. The data included in this analysis came from studies that measured egg and adult densities, allowing estimation of the per capita rate of egg recruitment or apparent fecundity.

The conventional sample unit for spruce budworm life stages is a cm branch tip removed from the mid-crown of host trees [18]. 1. Introduction. Defoliation by spruce budworm, Choristoneura fumiferana (Clem.), has caused substantial loss to merchantable timber in eastern Canada and the United States (MacLean, ), and is considered the most widely distributed and destructive defoliator of spruce–fir (Picea spp.–Abies spp.) forests in North America.
