whats this bug….
This is second email I sent. The first one the picture did not attach to… Am trying again. I found this bug crawling accross my patio. He was moving pretty fast and when I put his in the jar to take his picture he would not hold still. I believe he was on a mission. I have never seen another one like him. And would appreciate it if you could identify him. I am in Northern California. Thanks in advance,

Hi Adrienne,
We believe that mission was to devour potentially injurious insect pests in your yard. This is a Ground Beetle Larva in the family Carabidae. They are fierce predators and a gardener’s friend.
