An absolutely horrific poster of a huge beetle smashing the roof of a farm!

The poster is a Danish campaign poster that warns against snout beetles getting into your grain. The headliner says it all: "It steals your grain".

I love the way the artist enlarged the beetle and made the poster looks like something from a horror movie. But the fact that the beetles is hard to spot and yet ate about 2% of all grain in Denmark makes the danger of this little follow quite palpable. In the little yellow circle the artist enlarged the snout beetles so we can see how they are having fun in the valuable harvest.

Furthermore, in the bottom the poster urges farmers who spots the beetle to send some alive insects to a government lab - in a tiny box that fits a standard letter. If the farmer caught the right animal, then an pest official would be dispatched and guide you through the horror. 

Thanks for watching and please let me know if you have any questions.
