What do they  look like?

 bores
The beetles spend most  of their time underneath cover of the bark and are rarely seen. Pine bark beetles may have infested your tree if you note that the tree has needles around the crown which have yellowed, or gradually gone from yellow to a brownish or reddish orange. You may also note small holes within the body of the tree trunk or  pitch around those holes.


How do they hatch
The  egg to adult stages ranges average from 26 to 54 days. The beetles may have as few as three generations and as many as seven generations in Texas. The beetles stay over winter inside trees at all stages. In the spring when the dogwoods bloom, adults begin to fly. Females land on host trees, 2 - 9 m off the ground, bore through the bark.

They produce a pheromone that attracts males and females together to attack the tree en mass. Females begin building egg galleries. Mating takes place in the gallery followed by female egg laying.
