Re: Re: infor

They don't look to me like any pics of lace bugs I've found.  He said he
thought it was that from the appearance of their backs.  He didn't put them
under the microscope though.  Last year from the photos, he said he thought
they might be some kind of beetle. You can't hand pick these marge, I have
tried. As you approach they scurry to the other side of the stem.  If you
move to grab them they fly - extremely fast.  They look like tiny little
brown Pac-Man guys, always carrying a tuft of cotton behind them.

If I find them again I'll try another picture.  Just last month I deleted
the photos I had posted at my Yahoo site.  They were not very good anyway.
