Rocky Mountain National Park this spring will continue its mitigation efforts of tree-killing bark beetles, the Coloradoan reported.

From late April through Memorial Day Weekend, the park will apply an insecticide to up to 1,500 trees to protect them from bark beetles. The Carbaryl-based Insecticide will be applied from the ground and sprayed onto individual trees to repel beetle attacks.

Temporary closures to the public and employees will be in effect during spraying operations.

Park staff members will also remove hazard trees in several areas of the park.
