The Colorado potato beetle is a dangerous potato pest, which originally comes from America. In 1877, the Colorado beetle reached Germany but it was eradicated. During, or immediately following WWI it became established near USA military bases in Bordeaux and proceeded to spread by the beginning of WWII. During World War II, the Nazi regime in Germany used them for propaganda, claiming that the beetles had been dropped by the United States Army Air Forces. After the war the Communists used it for propaganda against the „Imperialists"as well. This video shows how did the propaganda look like in Czechoslovakia. The beetle was referred to as American Bug.
