:) If someone knows of a good site, or has experience identifying the larvae, I
:) would appreciate some feedback.
I would think the easiest way would be to contact the
local extension service or your state's main ag
university to send them samples. Or to satisfy your
curiosity you could isolate an infested log loosely
wrapped in plastic and kept warm to let the larvae
develop into a more easily identifiable adult.
