Dear bug guy,

    Thought you might like to know we have seen Dogbane Leaf Beetles in Lake Tahoe for the first time in my 22 years of living in the area. These as you know are native to all parts of the country except Nevada and California. I have reported them to the Agricultural Commissioner of Placer County. We hope the winter will kill them off but who knows. Thank you for your time. Renee
