Question What attracts Spotted Lanternflies?
Where I work, there is a rather large population of Spotted Lanternflies around our office building. From what I've read, they are considered invasive species and quite a problem this year in Pennsylvania. However, I've only really noticed them outside the office building where I work. What ...

Question What insect makes this hissing type sound, especially in the summer?
During the summer, I always hear this sound. It's like a long "hissing" sound. I assume that it is some sort of insect that produces this, and it's usually during warmer days. It can be heard all day long, but I don't think at night I've ever heard it. What bug makes this sound?

Question How does a tree with such an extreme curvature form?
Back in my hometown in Northeast Pennsylvania, I remembered that there was this tree down my road that had an extreme curvature to it. Now, I could see a branch of a tree growing like this, but this trees curved part was its trunk and very low to the ground, and then it started to grow straight up. ...

Question What causes a tree to split into multiple trunks?
There is this one tree (I believe an oak tree) near my road that is very large in size. Practically at the base of its trunk, it diverges into four other large trunks: What causes this phenomenon in trees? Is it possible that this was actually a few trees that have grow into one another? To me,...

Question What is this tree with shiny leaves and a fuzzy seed pod?
I was walking my dog along this one stretch of side walk in my neighborhood and there are a few of these trees lined up along it. They have a fuzzy seed pod (or perhaps a flower pod?) that reminds me of an artichoke, and smooth shiny leaves. Below are pictures of the pod and leaves, and the bark (w...

Answer A: What precautions should I take when cooking smelly food in an area with bears?
You've got most of it down already. Cooking away from your sleeping area is always a good precaution, and never eat or bring food into your tent. A PDF from CapitolRiders.org points out some of the precautions you can take: Handle food with care. For the best bear-deterring actions, obey thi...

Question How/why do moths appear to not move for days?
I've noticed that there is a moth on the outside of my apartment door that has been just sitting there for two days now: There is a light outside my apartment door that likely is what attracted this guy in originally, but even at night time, it just sits here. This isn't the first time I've witne...

Answer A: Does shaving help prevent tick bites?
I can't say for sure if this site is autoritive or not, but it does say that shaving your legs makes it more difficult for a tick to stick to you: Shave your legs: Leg hair makes it much easier for a tick to hitch a ride on you. I also found another source saying shaving helps as well: One...

Answer A: What kind of tree produces these long multi-seed pods?
After waiting months for the leaves to return on the tree and reading the comment made by Jamesqf, this is a Honey Locust Tree. On the Wikipedia page for the tree, there is a picture that matches what the pods look like before they ripen: One thing I should point out from Jamesqf's comment is tha...

Answer A: Eating ants/termites on outdoor expeditions
Weaver Ants (as well as Weaver Ant Larvae) are apparently one of the best insects humans can consume. According to Wikipedia: Weaver ants are one of the most valued types of insects eaten by humans (entomophagy). In addition to being used as a biological control agent to increase plant productio...

Question What kind of tree produces these long multi-seed pods?
My last question provided me with a very thorough answer and I'm hoping for the same thing with this one. Another kind of tree in my area (southeast Virginia) produces these long seed pods with seeds that are about the size of a sunflower seed (and look like it too). When the pods first fell, they ...

Question What kind of tree produces these seed pods looking like spiky balls?
I recently moved to southern Virginia near the coast (about 15 miles in from it). All over the ground are these spiky balls that I assume contain seeds to the tree they fall off of. There are literally thousands of these things on the ground. When they first fell, they were green in color. I would ...
