We generally recommend using a pyrethroid such as Talstar P Professional Insecticide or Permethrin SFR as a preventative treatment in late spring/summer before egg hatch to protect trees. If trees are badly infested, then they should be removed and either chipped or burned.
Keep in mind that trees which become infested with bark beetles are almost always susceptible due to some other existing weakness such as drought or disease.

How long it takes the insects to die after they come into contact with a treated area will depend on a number of factors. It will depend on the maturity of the insect and type of insect as well as how long they stayed on the treated area, how long it has been since the area was treated and the concentration that was used to treat the area. Typically it can take anywhere from a couple of hours to a day or so for them to die
