Bug experts were hoping—–but say the cold spell we just went through—-probably didnt do a thing—to kill off the pine beetles like they’d been hoping.
Pine beetles are a HUGE problem in Alberta forests right now—especially in places like Jasper and Banff…..
But if they’re hit by an extreme cold snap at just the right time—-Mother Nature can do wonders in getting rid of them.
Trouble is—-now isnt the right time—because most of them are larvae—and well protected.
What we need—is some extreme cold–in the spring.
