Mark record


The bark beetles increased in the Kamloops Region in 1978 while the defoliators such as spruce budworm and pine sawfly decreased. Larch casebearer populations increased at three locations and scale insects on ponderosa pine continued to cause damage from Okanagan Falls to Oliver. Foliar diseases were less conspicuous in 1978. A black stain root disease was found in a second area within the Region near Barriere.
