SD Dept. Of Ag Warning Against Pine Beetle Cures

SD Dept. Of Ag Warning Against Pine Beetle Cures
RAPID CITY, SD - The South Dakota Department of Agriculture is warning Black Hills residents about so-called "miracle cures" that promise to save a tree after it has become infested with mountain pine beetles.

State Forester Ray Sowers says an increasing number of methods are being offered that promise to protect trees by increasing the amount of pitch the tree produces or claiming to infect beetles with a disease that eventually kills them.

The beetles have killed millions of trees across the Rocky Mountain region.

But Sowers says many of the products and methods have not been independently tested.

The Agricultural Department says the only effective way to protect a pine tree from the beetles is to spray the trunk of a tree before the tree has been infested.
