It's an insect, so it can't have 8 legs :)

Is it considered communal?

I Don't think that all insects are pest! :evil: That's why I asked that question,to reduce the number of possible insects. But you are right, I don't like insects! :lol:

Heh, sorry I was away. :) Anyway lets begun. 8)

Does it eat leaves?
Hm, I dont think so. It is herbivorous but I dont think that adults eat leaves and larvae most certanly dont.

Is it a Coleoptera?
Does it have complete metamorphosis?

Yes, it is Coleoptera.

Is it considered communal?
No. Solitary.

Is it a pest?
Pest?! PEST?!!!! You dare call an insect a pest in my face?!!!!! ARGHHHH!!!! :evil:
Lol! Just kidding. Unfortunately it is consider pest in forestry cause it can damage old and comercialy profitable trees. (damn I just gave you a habitat hint ;))
