BIG BEAR – (INT) - The invasive goldspotted oak borer (GSOB) has been detected in dying California black oaks in the community of Sugarloaf.

It is the second GSOB infestation identified in San Bernardino County. The first was discovered in the Oak Glen area in 2018. It is also the second GSOB infestation on the San Bernardino National Forest, following the first in Idyllwild in 2012.

The long-range spread of GSOB from its native range in Arizona is attributed to the movement of infested firewood.

The Forest Service says GSOB may already be in other portions of San Bernardino County but haven’t been yet discovered. The non-native beetles aggressively attack California black oaks, coast live oaks and canyon live oaks.

just got a bunch of wood with the bore makings shown on google images. I'll burn it all down the hill, but please people, be on the safe side and don't bring firewood up the hill.

DO NOT bring non-local wood into the area! If you need firewood, get it from a local supplier who uses local wood.

(It hurts to post this, as we had a large tree removed a little over a year ago and now have a bit over a cord of ready to burn wood at our home own the hill.) We will burn it here, we just tend to use the fireplace in Big Bear a great deal more.

Oh, so I thought that I had a moth problem (20-60 moths each night for 3-4weeks). Well, as I went hiking along 2N10 on Wednesday, and cruised around the top of Snow Summit, I saw this at Chair 3... Then while heading home on 2N10, is saw more (camera doesn't do it just -- lots not seen by the camera) Yikes!! [Click Here]

Jilly, good contractors are busy. VERY busy. If your job is small they have to weigh taking time out from larger jobs that provide more money for their them and the crews they support. Have patience- or find a contractor who doesn't have a sterling reputation and so will have more time. BTW- Big Bear is actually better than many places. Took a friend in LA 3 MONTHS to get a contractor to come look at a remodel.

Crazy Tling! In the past month I've seen maybe 6 of those moths. However, the ladybugs were insane today, thousand of them all over my yard, a major swarm! I'll take that over the moths!

Weird, my cameras show the moths swarm at around 5am. I see a lot of bats in Sugarloaf gorging themselves. Good to have cameras.

DIY has a number of sites in LA basin and SF Valley. Probably is a corporate decision.

I haven't been that side of town for a couple days. Has the protester crowd got larger? If not, bet it was a HQ's decision.
