When we built our last home I was blown away one day. We were almost finished with the house and I pulled into the driveway and stopped. I didn't know what I was looking at. The garage door and the left side garage wall was completely covered in them. It was horror movie stuff. I had some bug killer that you put on the garden hose to spray trees. I sprayed the infested area. I had 6 inches of dead bugs laying at the base of the wall and door. I didn't have a camera and cell phone was primitive. So no pics. I'm assuming they liked the new lumber.

These are Asian beetles. They were released by the Dept of wildlife to help remove some other insect that was destroying the pine wood forest. If I remember correctly it has become a pest now. Lol
