Long-distance flights are a very common phenomenon among insects. This strategy helps maximize their survival in various environments. Researchers with the Canadian Forest Service (CFS) have devised their own strategy for observing the movements of the spruce budworm (SBW), the most destructive pest in the Canadian boreal forest: they use weather radars.
