Palo Verde Beetles- Yuck!


I loathe these things. Every night this time of year we kill at least one on our front porch. The other night we killed two on the front porch and a few nights before that, we killed three in flight in our back yard. They resemble something like an armored demon. In these parts they are three inches long at least, they look like humming birds in the air and I think they are disgusting. You can learn more about these disgusting, good for only God knows what… things here.

    That’s a good place to have a birthday calendar. I usually put inappropriate jokes on my toilet wall. šŸ˜‰
