Metallic wood boring beetle Buprestis rufipes

Recommended Posts

I found one of these today. Probably the most beautiful things I've ever seen. They say they eat dead or dying trees. I am going to experiment with freshly broken branches. I theory, those would be dead or dying eventually. Perhaps cut blocks of Fire wood migh be better. Although I cant find the adult diet to know 100%. http://bugguide.net/node/view/358561/bgimage
