Rick and Ann, hmmmm....maybe that was incorrect in how I defined cold.  I see that yes, they can survive the cold.  I don't think that Canada is allowing the importation of honeybees from the states, queens yes, but not the bees themselves, must be a good reason for that, from what you are saying Ann about the beetle coming from packages coming from Georgia.  Beautiful and most wonderful day, this is a glorious live we live.  Cindi

Cindi, the larvae you have pictured, were they pointed on both ends?

JP, I looked at the original picture and tried to enlarge it. I don't recall much about the larvae when I looked at it, but the enlarged picture looked like it was round on one end and the head was pointed.  I do remember watching this hideous little things and they put their pointed heads up like they were looking around.  Eeeks!!!  I am serious, still thinking about how these creeps looked around freaks me out!!!  I don't think they had eyes, but they sure looked like they were looking around.  If I encounter them again I will take a better close up.  Freaky little freaks!!!  Beautiful, most wonderful day, lovin' and livin' our greatest of lives.  Cindi
