  2. I was in Lamar , Okla the first part of May and a very strange thing happened. Swarms of Australian green beeltes were everywhere. Even in the house. No one had ever seen them before . It was like they came from the earth and disappered two weeks later. This area is about 3 hours east of Moore Okla where they had a catagory 5 tornadoes. Is there any way, these beetles come from the earth prior to the tornadoes and then buried them selves again? All the old people in the little towns have never seen them before. Where did they come from? They were shiny and green with fuzzy legs. They actually had a sting to it. No one knows anything about them.. Can you help

  3. They are Stag Beetles /Australian Green Beetles.

    In my pasta, cereals, flour + a few other spots are very small critters that appear on my shelves also black about 1 mm etc. Look like a microscopic turtle without a shell. Of course we have cleaned, restored, thrown out sprayed and now have everything in jars or sealed containers. What are they? any suggestions? Many thanks Oh yes, we are in S.E. Florida but not rural.

    I was just wondering if it’s allowed to resend the identification request if I don’t get a reply within a certain time? (:

    • bugman says:

      Resending is recommended if you didn’t get a response. We are unable to respond to every request. Please put second attempt in the subject line.
