Beetle Hunt

Scientists at Cornell University are on the lookout for the viburnum leaf beetle (Pyrrhalta viburni), and they want your help. According to this article in The Ithaca Journal, volunteers have been enlisted to find the insects and then report back on when the eggs hatch and how much damage is caused to the viburnums. So far volunteers have signed up from several northeastern states. If you're interested in submitting information, you can find more information here.
