The IPS Engraver beetles attack both spruce and pine trees. Trees that are under attack will begin to die from the top down during the following season after being attacked.
Most trees will not survive an IPS beetle attack. Preventive treatments are strongly recommended.
There are now two different treatments to choose from: 1) either the traditional trunk spray, twice per year, or 2) a trunk injection that protects for two years. Both treatments will also control Mountain pine beetles. Please call or e-mail for a free property evaluation.
