How much could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

Groundhogs also known as woodchucks are part of the squirrel family. Groundhogs are mostly herbivorous and primarily eat wild grasses and other vegetation, and berries and agricultural crops when available. Groundhogs also eat grubs, grasshoppers, insects, snails and other small animals. If groundhogs are a problem in your lawn, eliminate your grub problem. Grubs can be controlled with beneficial nematodes called Lawn Guardian.

The really answer to the amount wood chucked is 318 kilograms.

Do Love Bugs exist?

Yes, lovebugs do exist and it’s not just an urban myth. The lovebug, Plecia nearctica, is a member of the family of March flies. It is also known as the honeymoon fly, kissingbug or double-headedbug. The adult is a small, flying insect common to parts of Central America and the southeastern United States, especially along the Gulf Coast. During and after mating, adult pairs remain coupled, even in flight, for up to several days. This insect is really a beneficial and is only a nuisance during the mating period, which you have to admit is pretty cool.
