Some fun for a Friday. And I’m sure the large number of beer bottles in the video are a total coincidence :D
Virginia Tech has a nice publication on Bark Beetles:
“Bark beetles attack trees that are weakened or dying due to stress factors such as drought, disease, smog, mechanical injury, alteration of the water table, or root damage due to nearby construction.”
All sorts of Bark Beetle information is also available at barkbeetles.org, BTW.
Waggle of the antennae to InsectaPodcast for pointing me at this.
