Adult pine beetles come to the surface when temperatures exceed 16°C, and most beetles will fly within three days. They prefer to fly in high light intensities, although they can also fly in low light intensities. The beetles will not fly if temperatures drop below 19°C or if wind speeds exceed 7 km/h. Heavier beetles usually fly sooner than lighter beetles and younger beetles usually fly sooner than older beetles. Males and females are equally likely to fly Table 1.
