This fuzzy fellow is infesting the bark crevices of my Tallow tree ... I am sure he is a bad bug for the tree's sake . I flipped him over to take a photo of his underbelly . Is this a larvae stage of some beetle or is it full grown ? Thanks for any help in it's identification ... should I take evasive action on it before it spreads ? Sincerely , Beth
