DescriptionSouthern pine beetle (SPB) is one of the most formidable insect pests impacting southern forests. Federal, State, and private forest managers have always dealt with this pest in some capacity. One of the primary requirements for controlling SPB is locating infestations on the ground. Once the infestation has been located, data is collected and used in management decisionmaking. Several methods have been used to accomplish these tasks. This paper describes traditional methods, as well as new technologies being used for SPB field surveying.
