Bat's in the belfrey, Bugs on the tile.....
For some reason the evening after a rain we get an infestation of these bugs. I guess the correct term would be some kind of beetle.
For some reason they only come out at night and only after a rain. Why?
In a area about 10 ft by 10 ft , I counted about 60 of them.... that's seems like a lot..
The don't seem to do any damage other than fly and buzz around into and around your head.
In the morning, the are all upside down on their backs, with a few still wiggling their legs.
I tried to right them up, but it seems that their useful work of buzzing and irritating ends after the sun comes up.
Perhaps they are called the vampire beetle?
The are about an inch or so.....
I wonder how they would taste.... not that desperate yet.
