    I've been seeing a lot of the white grubs but this is the first time for the bugs, beetles. Can anyone ID these?

    :lol: Yeah your right!! Did you see the one where he ate that huge grub that exploded!!! I think i would starve to death.

    I've been seeing a lot of the white grubs in other wood as well. All this wood is oak. There not down in there deep like they were in the pine i split a few month ago. In some of the pine they were almost all the way to the center of a 18" round.

    This is the first time i have seen the beetle. Is this what the grub turns into? Or were they just hangin in the same tree?

    They might be elm leaf beetles, they're olive green to black in color. We actually have them all the way out in NW Montana. I'm a bit west of Glacier National Park and had these guys getting into my green houses this past spring and summer. I hadn't noticed them in previous years. They can do a number on trees.

    Would depend on how deep they are in the wood. Usaually there just inside and under the bark region.So i doubt it if the wood has been bucked. Gets a liitle cold in NY. HA

    I'm on a scientific research mission. Send all the wood you have with specimens in tact. I'm trying to see if the infestation will evolve into a fire resistant strain. Haven't seen much development yet but the research is time consuming and I would appreciate all the help others want to send my way. Thanks in advance guys....

    I was splitting some Honey Locust for the garage stove today and I found one of these worms about an inch below the bark. I've seen them before too, but not often. I also awakened a lot of black ants from a peaceful slumber.
    It was such a nice day today, I should've thrown the worm on a hook and walked up to the pond.
