Is that an invasive species recently introduced? Those are always the worst. I was reading something about Hawaii where they had these big slow flightless birdlike meatbags that lived there...then humans showed up and...guess who likes to eat meat?

I don't believe so but I'm not sure. From what I've read, climate change has elongated our summers and shortened our winters, which is what has allowed for them to spread far more rapidly than they used to.

I think it actually is in the article I posted.

I've got ten dead ash trees in my backyard courtesy of the invasive emerald ash borer. F'n sucks to see these tall trees dying right before my eyes not to mention the expense of having them removed so they don't crush my house or my family. Hopefully some ash trees out there will find some defense mechanism to fight back with.

We lost several beautiful elm and black walnut trees thanks to some beetles. Cost a few K's to take down, but we had to. Our backyard seems empty without them Sad

Aiya. That sucks Sad We have three on our property right now that we need to get removed too but I think they just up and died. Dodgy

That'd be cool! I wouldn't be surprised anymore.

When plants fight back! Laugh out load

It's global warming. Insect populations, previously kept in check by colder winters, are changing the tree populations all over the US and Canada.

Jebus.
After he rested on day 7 of creation, he came back on Monday for a little overtime.

Yeah, creationists will accept microevolution. They don't believe in that silly macroevolution, where atheists say that pine trees give birth to cats, which in turn, give birth to dogs. That's just crazy talk.
