Guess the Pest! September 22 Answer: Beaver

David Owens, Extension Entomologist,

The best answer for last week’s challenge was a human stealing Halloween decorations. However, the correct answer goes to John Draper who wrote BEAVER. Who knew? Beaver was probably thinking ‘gee, this was easier than a tree’ and ‘I can’t find any trees’. Alan Leslie sent me this confirming photo of the beaver’s dam. I hope all other beavers got a chuckle out of the corny joke.
