Literally millions of WOBB can emerge from a large infested tree over one season. This life cycle, if not disrupted, can lead to a "domino affect" of an entire forest. WOBB has been observed flying every month of the year in southern California. The best way to detect early infestation of WOBB is to have a qualified arborist inspect the upper canopy. Canopy inspections should be done using gaffless climbing techniques (no climbing spurs). Spur climbing of green trees should be avoided because it creates wounds and points of entry for beetles and pathogens. for WOBB and usually does not involve climbing. Evidence of GSOB include crown thinning, loss of vigor, sporadic )lack wet lesions on lower trunk, 1/8 incth d-shaped exit holes, bird feeding damage on the lower trunk, and large quantities of basal sprouts, (water sprouts) in areas of activity. exit holes of the Western Oak Bark Beetle GOLD SPOTTED OAK BORER In recent years, a new beetle, the Gold Spotted Oak Borer (GSOB), has emerged in southern California. Currently, this beetle is found sporadically in the southern half of San Diego County. GSOB has a greenish black bullet shaped body about inch long with small symmetrical yellow to orange colored spots on their backs and bodies. Historical damage to trees suggests that the GSOB have been in southern California oak trees for about eight years. The GSOB is believed to have spread to California from Northern Mexico and Arizona, possibly by hitchhiking in loads of unseasoned firewood. It is suspected that GSOB lay one singular egg per site on the bark of the host tree. This egg hatches and the grub bores into the bark and down to the cambium. The grub tunnels in irregular directions in the cambium zone as it grows larger and larger. Once grown to about 1-1/2 inches long, the grub tunnels to the bark surface where it digs out a chamber, folds into a horseshoe shape, and pupates (transforms into a beetle). The adult beetle then emerges from the bark and flies into the oak canopy. Even though the population densities of GSOB are not as high as WOBB, a longer lifecycle and larger grub cause massive damage to the cambium and bark of the tree. GSOB grubs have at least one bark killing, xylem clogging fungus which is associated with the grubs area of damage. GSOB damage is found in the lower 1/2 of most trees. Early inspection is therefore easier than Thinning Crown is a sign of infestation Liaisons on the trunk show part of the extent of a beetle attack. kifecycles of the WOBB, GSOB, and their associated fungus cause massive damage to the cambium, bark, and xylem systems within a tree. Physical and chemical destruction of the trees most valuable parts is difficult for trees to over come, yet, these trees do respond! Sensing tissue destruction, some trees try to stimulate dormant cells in the bark. These special cells in the bark are converted to wood (reaction wood) in an attempt by the tree to re-establish a new cambium zone for circulation and seal off the area of destruction.

Evidence from large scale WOBB and GSOB attacks has shown trees trying to rebuild a full 360 degree of cambium and wood. Complete vascular and structural reorganization must take place. If the tree is in a weakened state this task is too great and the tree usually dies. A healthy tree tries to use sap pressure to smother and eject invaders. Certain factors, however, weaken trees and predispose them to successful attack. Drought, old age, soil type, soil depth, fire damage, previous beetle attack, poor pruning, root zone compaction, root loss from construction, nutrient depeletio n, over crowding, geographical location, etc., all have an affect on a trees health. These factors must be accurately evaluated to determine a'trees predisposition. Once a tree has a major oak beetle infestation, rarely do they survive! Basal sprouts showing evidence of infestation.
