Between Jan. 3 and 8 the temperature hit a low of -32 and stayed under -22 for those six days. Could that have affected the lives of the beetles that have infested trees in and around Prince George?

It didn’t even faze the spruce beetle, whose numbers have increased since 2014 from a rating of endemic (just a part of the forest) to an outbreak rating with no end in sight.
