its kinda like a tiger beetle,but not really.
dull black,with wings. orange stripe starting at shoulders,and going down towards wing tips.
about 1/2 inch(1.5 cm.) long,sluggish,uninterested till you poke it,then it flies away.
been looking online,but no luck.
no camera either,sorry!
there just seems to be so many of them. kinda like an earwig infestation every 7 years.
only thing is,i ain't never seen them before!!!!
they seem harmless,quite sluggish,don't bite,and pretty well don't care about me!!!
i'm sure their larvae are burrowing into all the trees and reaking havoc there like the asian long horned beetle!
they dont 'bug' me really,they are just everywhere! i visited my folks last weekend,and was telling my mom about them,when lo and behold,there were
plenty around their house too!
she said she had never seen these guys before either!
so,any help would be cool!
