tree-killing pest
just wondering how they kill trees?

Oh there isn't much in my childhood collection, because although I spent a great part of my childhood looking at and collecting bugs, I almost always let them go. So the ones I have either died of natural causes, or were given to me, and there is one beetle I was told was a tree-killing pest so it was okay to freeze it.

The bluebottle wasp female is wingless. Here is the rarely seen winged male (with female) in the top of a flowering bush (Bursaria).
