Summary
Called "Absolutely brilliant!" by the New York City Department of Environmental Protection, this documentary tracks the war being waged by entomologists, ecologists, government officials, and private citizens against the Asian longhorned beetle - a nonnative species of insect that could destroy one third of America's trees. In addition to illustrating how these beetles do their damage, Bugged stresses the vigilance and cooperation needed to identify infestations and halt their spread. Interviewees include Ann Hajek and E. Richard Hoebeke, of Cornell University; Joseph Gittleman, Clint McFarland, and Phillip Lewis, of the USDA; and other concerned individuals. A useful case study for introducing the concept of invasive species!
