Montana campground taking extra measures to stop pine beetles

(July 15, 2011) -- The mountain pine beetles are in their prime at the Gallatin National Forest, and Pine Creek Campground is taking extra measures to stop beetles from killing their trees, reports the Bozeman News.

BOZEMAN, Mont. — The mountain pine beetles are in their prime at the Gallatin National Forest, and Pine Creek Campground is taking extra measures to stop beetles from killing their trees, reports the Bozeman News.

Carbonyl is being sprayed on the trees in attempts to stop the damage that the fast-working beetles can do. The spraying is mostly being done in areas seen and used by campers.

“People are looking for a shaded area, a place with trees to go camping and we want to be able to provide that for them,” Gallatin National Forest public affairs officer Marna Daley said.
