Southern Pine Beetle in New Jersey

The Southern Pine Beetle (SPB), one of the most destructive forest insects in the southeastern United States, quickly devastates pine-dominated forests during high infestations. Not only is the Southern Pine Beetle one of the most destructive insects, but it also increases wildfire danger to people, property, and the environment.
