Early detection of mountain pine beetle (MPB) is crucial for management. To help our partners, fRI Research has developed and released the Pine Beetle smartphone app for iOS and Android.
Anyone can download the app on their smartphone and if they spot a beetle infested pine tree, they can use the app to take a picture and upload the data to our servers. The locations of MPB infestations will be shared with interested parties including government and industry so that they can improve their management plans.
