Rapid Pest Risk Analysis (PRA) for: Tetropium fuscum
This rapid PRA shows that T. fuscum prefers to attack already stressed Picea (spruce) trees, but in Canada and to a limited extent in Europe, infestation has led to the death of trees that may otherwise have recovered. This pest had few previous records in Great Britain and recent surveillance has revealed several sites in Scotland where there are breeding populations. The likelihood is that the pest is more widely established in Great Britain than is currently known.
