Happy Mystery Monday! Last week we highlighted the beech blight aphid, otherwise known as the “boogie woogie aphid.” These aphids feed on beech trees and they start to “dance” as a defense mechanism when they are disturbed. These aphids don’t pose any lasting harm to the beech tree.
For this week, do you know what this is? These plants are found along our forest trails and produce these bright pink seeds in the fall!
