Whispering Beetle?
Hi,
We live in Erickson BC and the other night this beetle appeared in our home. The kitty was playing with it and it was making sounds like Shoooosh, shooosh, shoooosh, the whole time. I have never seen this type of beetle before with a wing like front tentical or front fee, (cant make out for sure which it is on that). Could you identify it for me please? Your help would be appreciated. Any help sure would be appreciated.
Thanks
Caryle Schroeder

Hi Caryle,
Nice photo of a Ten-Lined June Beetle, Polyphylla decemlineata or a closely related species. The adults do make loud squeeking noises if handled. This species has impressive antennae and it is attracted to lights.
