Pine Sawyer Beetle is Badly Camouflaged

This whitespotted pine sawyer beetle probably blends into pine bark quite well, but on a smooth green plastic lawn chair it’s hopeless.

Not to be confused with the asian longhorn beetle, which kills trees, this variety feeds on dead (or dying) trees.

How about that reflection?

If your rub both of its antenna at the same time, it will make a high pitched screaming noise. I’m not sure what part of the body the noise comes from, but its not the wings.

Yes, I made a pine sawyer scream.
