A pine branch with Monophlebus Hellenicus insect in Athens Kesariani forest.
A dead pine tree branch infected with the Monophlebus Hellenicus insect is seen in Athens' Kesariani forest May 8, 2005. Millions of pine trees throughout Greece have been killed by the insect this year threatening the country with a major environmental disaster. The outbreak has been triggered by Greek honey makers who introduced it in a bid to increase production as the insect produces a type of honeydew but it has since spread to other forests and nature reserves.
