November 8, 2012 – Suffocating
As far as I know, this tiny white and grey bugs have killed several tree outside my backyard. So, far there is no serious loss because there were just some random hedges that grew outside the fence. It is, however, very alarming. These tiny bugs are so relentless and they moved from tree to tree and seemingly harmless but slowly suffocate trees tens and thousands of their size. The bugs are small and even with my macro lense, I can’t see much of the bug. However, they are powerful. If they weren’t so destructive, they would make a very good poster child for teamwork. Imagine, all these tiny bugs working together, methodically, taking down, suffocating giant trees.
