Buprestids, or jewel beetles, are one of the most diverse and popular families of beetles. They were well known to ancient Egyptians, Romans and Greeks who carved them in stone, used them for medicine and even considered them acceptable dinner fare! Come hear Jason speak about their life history, how to identify adults and immatures, and most timely, Jason will discuss what the coming emerald ash borer may mean for our ash trees.
