This BEETLE was found behind a Military Building at BASE GAGETOWN in New Brunswick, Canada. No one could indentify this fellow, except to say that it may be a Beetle from the STAG Family?? Can you help us identify our ”little” Friend?? He only stayed long enough for me to get his picture, then he was off to the races…

Hi Terry,
Identification requests for Toe-Biters or Giant Water Bugs are pouring in from Canada.  Conditions must be right for flight as these aquatic insects spend most of their time under water hunting for prey.  Because they are attracted to lights, they are also known as Electric Light Bugs.

    I go out almost every night here in Ohio to see what bugs are attracted to our backyard floodlight. I noticed that large moths and insects come most often when its overcast or close to a new moon. Must be pretty confusing when they come across parking lot lights.

    We were visting my inlaws in Comanche texas when we heard it hit the window. We went to investigate and found him on the screen upon further investagaing he got aggressive so we left him alone I had never seen this kind of bug.
