    Hello,
    My pine tree appears to be having damage done to it by the hundreds of the bugs in the attached image. With the research I have done it does not appear to be a Mountain Pine Beetle which is common in Colorado but I can't quite figure out what it is. It does look slightly similar to what a termite might be but I am not familiar with them enough to be certain.

    The image is extremely zoomed in and the bugs are very small. Sap is pouring out of the tree and pine needles have been dropping. The lower branches appear to be dying.

    Any assistance with this will be appreciated.
