Great spruce bark beetle
Great spruce bark beetle (Dendroctonus micans) is an insect pest of spruce trees. It is a native of Europe, Siberia, and Japan.
This is the largest European bark beetle. It infests wounded trees, primarily Norway spruce, Scots pine and larch. This is just one of many forest pests that are moved to un-infested forests by movement of firewood.
