We found this fella outside being harassed by the cats. We caught him, watched him, and let him go. He keeps hanging around the yard and doesn’t bother anyone. My wife searched Google and thinks this is an Eastern Spotted Clicking Beetle.
Do you agree? Anything to worry about here?
The most common names used for this species of Click Beetle, Alaus oculatus, are Eyed Elater and Eyed Click Beetle.
