Beetle Juice

Folks in Aspen and elsewhere in Colorado are hoping the recent cold snap is cold enough to kill some of the pine beetles that have killed 4 million acres of the state's forests. The Forest Service and scientists remain unsure, and say they won't know until the summer. Overall populations of pine beetles have decreased in the past two years since so many mature trees (i.e., food) have died. [Aspen Times]
