Delightful claymation describes how a fungus is used to control an insect pest

I've praised Max Helmberger's excellent claymation videos about insects in the past. He has produced another, this time for the New York State Integrated Pest Management Program. From the YouTube description:
The Hajek Lab group at Cornell University has been researching methods for biological control of Asian longhorned beetles using entomopathogenic fungi. This video describes the life cycle of Asian longhorned beetles and how an adult beetle gets infected, dies and transmits the infection to other Asian longhorned beetles.
