Compost Beetle Could Spell Trouble

Stuart Robinson writing at the Gardening For Dummies blog warns us of the upcoming compost beetle plague. In fact, Stuart thinks this pest could be even bigger than bird flu!

This beetle, with it's rapid reproduction patterns (they can double their population every 24 hours in their peak mating season of Autumn to the end of Spring) is fast becoming a threat, not just nationally, but globally.

Thousands of cases have been reported around the country and other countries as well. One unlucky gardener even lost her life its been noted.

Major Sam. Thanks for spreading the word. It seems the pandemic is increasing by the hour except authorities are hopeful that they could bring this under control within the next 24 hours.

It's these damn immigrant beetles that are coming here, ruining our crops. American beetles actually eat parasites, thereby boosting corn production. Happy April Fool's Day.
