Overview of stagbeetle nests in the Sutla area


In the fall of 2018, ZRSVN set up stagbeetle nests at 50 locations along the Sutla River. The nesting area consists of 0.5 m3 of oak trees slightly buried in the ground at the borders and edges of forests. The Institute of the Republic of Slovenia for Nature Protection, in cooperation with the National Institute of Biology, inspected 25 nesting sites this autumn. Among the trees, the larvae of rose chafers, little stagbeetle and stagbeetle found their home. Under the trees, mice dug trenches. A smooth newt, a fire salamander and a common frog also found shelter before the cold days under the trees.
