    Swarming invasive insect found in US for 1st time

    An invasive insect commonly found in south-central Europe has been detected in southwestern Idaho, marking the first time the elm seed bug has been spotted in the U.S., according to federal officials.

    Meanwhile, state officials are asking residents who come across the elm seed bugs outside of southwestern Idaho to collect a handful of the insects in a plastic sandwich bag and mail them to the Idaho Department of Agriculture's plant division in Boise.

    Do we send them air mail, snail mail or swarming bug mail?

    btw, don't crush them, they stink when you do that.

    "Federal authorities will take the lead role in investigating how the insects got to the U.S. and how they might spread."


    What are they gonna do? Put them in a room with a bare hanging light bulb an interrogate them 'til they give up the info? Waterboard?
