Help anyone please! This tiny tiny insect is boring into my citrus trees and killing them! I dug one out to photograph and take to my county extention agent. Anyone seen one before? It is quite tiny, about 1/16 inch or less long.
That is a pen point in the pic with it. I took the pic with super duper close up lenses and magnified with photoshop. Got to get rid of this thing!

Yes, hard shell. It is so tiny I can't get any good photos to pull in the details.
