I was at the barn this evening and checked my drilled poplar log hanging under the eaves and found that something had gnawed the center of this 6" diameter log, presumably to eat the larvae. Any idea on the culprit?
Thanks,
Greg Hershner

"gnawed" says something with teeth looking for a snack. If under eaves, then probably not a bear, though they'll get what they want where they want. Racoon or squirrel, my opinion. Not rat, unless you're on that Norwegian warf?
