Simon was found flying around a light last night. Presume he came in the open window from the nearby woods. We lost him for a bit but found him this morning in the cats’ water bowl.

Cockchafer

Dear McSpuddles,
This is the third request we have received this week from the UK to identify a Cockchafer.  We only posted one other one.  Cockchafers are a species of Scarab Beetle and they are also called May Bugs because of their seasonal appearance.  They are attracted to lights as your letter indicates.
