Yellow Douglas-fir borer (Centrodera spurca) on Oct 24, 2023
Submitter does not have a specimen
Description of specimen
The body of the insect was at least an inch long, longer with the antennae. Light brown in color, and on top of the body there was a black dot on either side. See attached picture.
I found a Douglas Fir Beetle in my backyard in the evening of June 26, 2023, which abuts to a large property owned by St. Paul Lutheran Church, which has a large forest of Douglas firs. I did not save the insect, but I took a picture of it. See attachment.
