The Devastating Affects of Heather Beetle

The devastating affects of Heather Beetle are becoming more and more noticeable as large expanses of Heather Moorland are showing a real Red tinge instead of the usual eye catching Purple bloom that is commonly seen at this time of year.

If you watch the video carefully you’ll be able to see the massive amounts of Heather Beetle Larvae on the heather and as the keeper walks through you can see the residue of dead heather and larvae covering his wellies.
