  The biggest expenditures were on aircraft, insecticide and personnel. In , for instance, some $ million was spent on spray planes, almost $ million on insecticide, and more than $ million on personnel. While the spruce budworm control program had a cadre of year round employees, that number swelled in the warmer months. Overview of: Spruce budworm outbreak Project summary.

Spruce Budworm Population Model with some numerical simulation results, suggests that along with destroying larvae, for example by insecticide, destruction of budworm in the inactive stage such as removal of egg biomass should be employed in an effective strategy for the successful control of budworm outbreak.

The first year after thinning, spruce budworm larvae reared on the residual trees developed five days faster and removed 43% more foliage than those reared on control trees, but in. Spruce budworm is mainly a pest of balsam and subalpine firs. Although considered a significant problem in forestry, this insect is an infrequent pest in the landscape.

A, B, and C: Data from Green River study (Morris a).Cited by: The Spruce Budworm Model One of the models discussed in this paper is of interest to us because it involves an insect pest found in northern Minnesota pineries, the spruce budworm (Choristoneura fumiferana). The model was developed in Canada to describe infestations observed there, but is certainly relevant to northern Minnesota.

Beginning in current-year defoliation was quantified using the Fettes Method on a subset of MFS-sampled L2 sites and additional sites in northern Maine. This method provides a systematic approach to measuring defoliation. It was employed during the last budworm outbreak in Maine.
