American bug on Texel, the Netherlands

This video from the USA is about western conifer seed bugs.

Translated from Ecomare museum on Texel island, the Netherlands:

U.S. bug on Texel – 04/10/1910

It was sitting there, feasting on a small coniferous tree in the garden of Ecomare employee Dick Schermer. The first western conifer seed bug of Texel! This insect is native to North America, and only in 2007 it arrived in the Netherlands via England. Because they can fly well, they are now found in many places in the Netherlands, especially in the coastal zone.
