Dendroctonus micans (Kugelmann, 1794) - (European spruce beetle)
This beetle attacks spruce trees in Europe and northern Asia. In Europe, the first outbreaks have been recorded around 1900. Unlike some other bark beetles, solitary females infest the trees and the larval development does not depend on the death of the host tree. Signs of infestation are trunk bleeding and resin tubes.
During a study in Turkey, Oriental spruce, Picea orientalis, was attacked at the first 1-2 m of the trunk and up to 40-160 attacks were counted on one tree (Alkan-Akinci et al., 2014). Other reports suggest that the attacks can occur anywhere on the trunk of host tree.
