What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

Hi
I am an American in Japan and thought you’d be interested in seeing what the tiger beetles here look like. They’re called hanmyou here.

I also included photos of a bagworm called a minomushi which means “straw raincoat”. They are a favorite of children here.

Hi Melody,
Thank you for sending us your wonderful images as well as the language lesson. The jaws on that Hanmyou Tiger Beetle are quite formidable.
