–What is this project all about, anyway?
–Why do beetles
–What are these “bark beetles”?: These beetles are much more that just what the name says: yes, many live in bark, but many also live inside trees and grow gardens of fungi for food (those are called ambrosia beetles). Many live in a strange family system with one brother an many sisters that have babies together. Several species are the world’s most destructive forest pests which, withe help of climate change, are turning Canada into grasslands. Want o know more?

–Several cool beetle species:
—the redbay ambrosia beetle, a foreigner from Asia that’s destroying Florida’s forests and the avocado industry: https://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/in886
—the Southern Pine Beetle: a native pest that once used to kill thousands of acres of pines yearly (http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/in333) but now it is a rare insect!
—the granulated ambrosia beetle: the most common beetle in your trap is probably not a native insect, but this invader from Asia: http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/in288
