Natural Sightings: Large but not scary.

These are a type of "longhorn beetle," named for their long segmented antennae. The adults appear in June through early August, often after warm nights. These insects spend most of their up to five-year life spans living underground as large white grubs or larvae, feeding on the roots of trees, shrubs and vines.

Between 2015 to 2017, California forests experienced historically high levels of tree mortality from the combined effects of drought and bark beetles, and today large swaths of brown, dead pine trees in the Sierra are a common sight, especially in the southern Sierra Nevada. Aerial surveys conducted by the U.S. Forest Service estimate that some 129 million trees have died in California since 2010.
