Mountain pine beetle season crawls to a close following extensive attacks

Mountain pine beetles have done their dirty work for the season in the Great Falls area.

"There are no beetles flying," Todd Seymanski, acting city forester, said this week. "There will be no new infestation (this year)."

Mountain pine beetles attacked and killed more than 150 evergreen trees in the city this year, Seymanski said.
