CKNW radio (Vancouver) and CBC.ca report today that the Pine Beetle is moving on from BC to Alberta. The epidemic in BC is over. Why? Because the pine beetle has run out of trees to consume. Scary.
(Of course, just because the bugs have stopped chewing doesn’t mean that the effects stop being felt. Communities throughout north-central BC will feel the impact of bug kill for years to come.)
