While at the pool, we stumbled on this amazing bug. Of course, if you know my Husband, he didn’t just look at the bug he wanted to touch it. It was such an amazing bug! We had never seen anything like and thanks to google we found out what it is: Eyed Elater Beetle.
This is a good bug! They are harmless, and feed on wood boring bugs when larva, and when full grown they feed on plant nectar.
I am not one for killing any bugs anyway- but this is a great lesson in being respectful of all God’s creations because while his size and apparence say back off, he is really, at least to us humans, a benefit for keeping away bugs that we don’t want.
