I live in Monte Vista, Colorado. The beetle comes out more after it rains. It has yellow and gold looking stripes with some thin black lines. It also looks like it has long eyelashes. Very cool! The noise it makes almost sounds like a hiss, and it has a fur like covering underneath it. What is this?

Hi Lisa,
This is our featured Bug of the Month this month, a Ten Lined June Beetle,
Polyphylla decemlineata.  They do “hiss” or stridulate when handled.
