So severe was the problem that a special prayer for the protection of forests from wind and insects was included in a prayer book printed in The southern pine beetle (SPB), Dendroctonus frontalis Zimmermann, is the most destructive insect pest of pine in the southern United States.

A recent historical review estimated that SPB caused $ million of damage to pine forests from through (Price et a1. This aggressive tree killer is a native insect that lives.

Beetles displayed extreme behavior in attempts to find hosts - attacking spruce. Brood was successful so this may have evolutionary significance. Young pine stands (25 to 55 years old) were attacked by MPB within the core outbreak area.

Stands of this age are still suffering scattered attack by MPB & secondary beetles. Dr. Oliveria says, "Red-cockaded woodpeckers and southern pine beetles go together in a pine forest, but if you put them in direct conflict, the beetles will win every time."
