Ecologists say the sub-zero temperatures Wyoming has been experiencing probably are not extreme enough to kill off bark beetles in the area.
One of the reasons the beetle kill epidemic has been so severe in recent years is that the region has not experienced cold enough weather to freeze out the beetles. UW botanist Dan Tinker says this cold snap is no exception. He says temperatures would need to be 30 degrees below zero for several days in a row to kill the beetles.
After a slow start, the University of Wyoming volley ball team went on a strong run and finished with a seven match win streak. The Cowgirls struggled adjusting to first year Head Coach Chad Callihan, but once things clicked the team opened some eyes.
