I can't tell if they are eating anything though. I'm just curious if anyone has any information on them:
Relatively true to life. I have been meaning to take a pic to identify this thing for awhile and as it happened this little injured guy dive-bombed my keyboard tonight and my cam was rite next to me.Kisal wrote:Is the color in your pic true to life? I mean is the background bright yellow and the beetle plain shiny gold? It's a scarab beetle, and this time of year, one of the most prevalent is the Japanese beetle. I can't tell from your pic whether it has the usual markings, i.e. white hairs along the sides below the edge of the wing covers, etc. I can see the clubbed antennae, though, which is typical of scarabs.
Thanks for the reply's everyone!Kisal wrote:Could it be a Brown Chafer? They're very common in MA.
