This is the site of an organization called Ohio Coleopterists. Of particular interest are a number of back issues of newsletters, with articles on such topics as rearing beetles and unusual collecting methods.

As of my October 2005 visit, the site appears to be no longer updated, but I found the newsletter backfile most useful and interesting. One article described finding an unused baseball diamond populated by wasps who caught and paralyzed Buprestid beetles. The author described wasps flying from all directions with dozens and dozens of buprestids of a number of different species! Lots of fun reading here.

Stephen,
This comment ended up being reported in the "spam" forum {HERE} because of the link. I did a couple of checks on that link and it does appear to be safe (according to Trend.com and UnmaskParasites.com but it surely doesn't belong to Ohio Coleopterists any longer. Do you have an updated url?

TO ALL OTHERS:
Don't bother clicking on the link for now unless you want to buy fake Louis Vuitton products :)
