Pesky Bug Problem
Southwestern Missouri has had the largest population growth of beetles recently. Beetle experts have been trapping the insects and monitoring their numbers.
Ben Puttler, MU Professor Emeritus and entomologist said "in 2002 is when we got 15 and at that time I considered it an established beetle in central Missouri. And since then, the numbers have increased."
You don't have to worry about them flying through your window, but you may want to watch out for your trees.
