That reminds me of the Stink Bug problem we are having over the past couple of years. Also from Asia.

Worcester here in central MA has the Asian Longhorned Beetle infestation. They just cut down almost every tree in certain parts of the city -- you should see the locals cry! :lol: Cities aren't supposed to have trees anyway!

Big fines for tree co.s that take the infested lumber out of the quarantine zone. Now neighboring states are worrying. http://www.telegram.com/article/20090523/NEWS/905230334



Last time I checked (which was when fuel was over $4/gallon), a cord of wood was going close to $350/cord around here -- all set with that! :lol:
