I live in West Columbia Texas and found these bugs outside. I’ve searched for an hour and cannot find what it is. Help?
These Barklice, Cerastipsocus venosus, are benign creatures that feed on fungus and lichens. They are generally found living on trees, and though they do not damage the trees, they might be a sign that the tree has health problems causing the growth of fungus that the Barklice are feeding upon. Barklice are commonly called Tree Cattle.
