    Invasive species are a very telling gauge of how insane normalcattle really are under the mask.

Using bowfishing gear to fricking bodyshot them with no care to limit their suffering.

    I went to PA recently and saw the lanternflies for the first time. I knew what they were immediately, and I always had thought they were moths, not treehoppers. They are quite beautiful so its a shame they are such an issue.

            It means that you have to kill them unless you have a better alternative like castrate them all. That is the only solution to invasive species. Either you kill them with whatever methods are available or you prevent them from reproducing so their numbers will go down. Can you do that? If you find a way to make them all sterile you can solve the problem and probably win a Nobel or something.

                point. Many parasites require multiple hosts during their life cycle. In their native habitat parasites help keep the population in check in addition to predators but when introduced in a new area the other hosts required for the parasite lifecycle are not present so the invasive species don’t have to deal with parasites while the local ones still have parasites. This gives an advantage for the invasive species over the native ones. They are lacking on an important population control mechanism.

    People were worried they're compete with the native garter snakes but garter snakes hunt near water and wetlands for mostly frogs while the lizards stay in hot areas eating ants and such.
    They're cute as shit but I see psychopathic parents (mostly natives) telling their kids to go around stomping on the lizards.
    Like shit man they're not going anywhere at this point and they're not hurting anyone you're just allowing your kid to be a sick frick to a cute species.

    They're invasive here on long island too. But it's cool to have them around. We have no native lizards and everyone loves them here. I can't imagine morons stomping them

    Oh hey. I'm from Italy and live in Delaware.

      This isn't just exclusive to invasive animals. So many people have no fricking qualms fricking brutalizing animals if they're seen as undesirable in any sort of way. It could be "self-defense," but even just "this animal is ugly" is reason enough for these buttholes to try and kill them in brutal manners.

      A few months ago I found a very large pinacate beetle at my college and just carried it around in my hand. It didn't mind my handling and just crawled around my hand and my desk. Unprompted one of my teachers tried to smash it with a notebook and I had to physically stop him from doing so, all because "ewww creepy crawlies." You should also see what people do to gopher snakes here when they confuse them for rattlesnakes. Fricking unhinged behavior, I tell you.

          I doubt that would work considering how insects reproduce like crazy. Not that civilians hunting them would have any effect either, all this is more to keep civilians busy. If there is a cordyceps that only affect these deploying a large amount of traps might have some effect to control them, probably the best solution are deploying parasites since the target will be used to breed more parasites, cordyceps would be a good choice. What we would need is to produce them in labs and spread the spores all over, the infected ones will produce more spores to infect more but the cycle will be broken when their numbers start getting low since the chances of a spore finding a host become too small. At this point you need to to produce more spores in lab and spread them to reduce the insect numbers even more and keep doing it from time to time to keep the population under control. The problem is if the parasite also affect other native species.

    Usually it's the brainrot pop media outlets telling people to kill all animals they think are invasive. Any biologist worth their degree won't tell you to stomp whatever invasive animals you think you've found, because the odds are much higher that you've misidentified a native species.

    Picrel, it's the famous "murder hornet" that got a ton of midwits to kill native wasps because they can't tell the difference between an Asian giant hornet and any other hymenopteran.

          Not really. The Asian Giant Hornet devastates honeybees because its late-stage colonies are specialised on raiding social bees & wasps. Solitary bees would be effectively unaffected. Some would be preyed upon, but that's more than made up for by the hornets' predatory pressure on other social wasps suppressing predation from them.
          Bumblebees might be at risk, but their nest sizes are significantly smaller than those of honeybees, it is doubtful that they'd be a sufficiently nutritious target for giant hornets. And again, the pressur the hornets could put on them is balanced out by the reduced pressure from honeybees (via food competition) that'a driving dozens of native pollinators towards extinction.
