 The dendroctonus species of bark beetles primarily feed on pine trees, although they will also occasionally choose to infest spruce or larch trees. Pine trees are weakened by bark beetles, or infestation may become so severe as to kill off the entire tree.     The duration from egg to adult stages  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.
