    Description

    The mountain pine beetle, Dendroctonus ponderosae Hopkins (Coleoptera: Curculionidae, Scolytinae) (MPB), is a bark beetle native to western North American forests, spanning wide latitudinal and elevational gradients. MPB infest and reproduce within the phloem of most Pinus species from northern Baja California in Mexico to central British Columbia in Canada, and their geographic range is dictated by the distribution of both suitable host species and favorable climatic regimes (Safranyik 1978, Logan and Bentz 1999).
