    I dunno...I think finding the other half on your face shield (or even worse, your hair) ranks right up there.

    Could it be a Emerald ash borer ????
    I know that they are making their way up to the Northeast. I see the purple traps up in the trees here and there around here.

    Interesting, as a side note, back in the early 60's I spent two summers working for the Agricultural Research Service conducting Gypsy Moth (introduced in 1869 as a silk worm substitute) surveys in St Lawrence and Jefferson Counties in upstate New York. Traps coated with Tanglefoot and baited with female Gypsy Moth pheromones were placed on a half mile grid throughout the area. During my second summer I recorded the first catch of a Gypsy Moth in the area. They remain a serious pest of NY forests and have destroyed thousands of acres of hardwood forest in the state.
