yeah, insect trackers. That's why they are telling people not to bring in firewood from out of state or take it out of state. They are attacking the trees and they want to see how far they have spread.

it is an insect collector for the dept. Of agriculture. so they can see what insects are still around an what new ones are around an if there are new kinds,,,its not just for one thing its for all kinds of to weather changes,what is killin trees,what new ones are in are area that was not befor,an what ones are leavin the area an trying to find out how far some migrate an see if there pattrens have changed ,because when new insects come in then area it brings other things an makes some things leave,witch may not be a good some may pack things that can infect us..THAT IS WHY
