Tuesday Teaser Answer

A beneficial bug larva, Rhinoncomimus latipe, is chewing the heck out of a Mile-a-Minute Weed at the Phillip Alampi Beneficial Insect Rearing Laboratory in West Trenton.

It's great news for the natural areas of the Meadowlands and statewide because the invasive Mile-a-Minute has been running wild all over the northern part of the state, with Bergen County considered the epicenter of the invasion.

Thanks to the folks at the Beneficial Bug Lab in West Trenton, this pest should be totally under control statewide in the next few years.

A link to the lab is here. More about Mile-a-Minute and Rhinoncomimus latipe here.
