Emily and I checked GMB populations in Pope Valley today (HOT).
The most prevalent life stage was 1st instar GMB under the bark (one on a leaf). They were hatching from the eggs as we watched (COOL). We also found some eggs that have not hatched yet.
Because of the small size of the 1st instar nymphs, they can be difficult to see without a hand lens.
