I was out watering the plants on my balcony when I came across this guy. He was lazily climbing the fence and gladly posed for pictures. 🙂 I used your site to determine that he (I named him “Loaf”) is a grapevine beetle. Just wanted to pass along a photo. We live at the edge of a wildlife preserve in south central Pennsylvania and have all sorts of interesting critters show up in the summer so I spend a lot of time on your site. You guys rock! Thanks for making me a little bit smarter!
We are happy to hear that you were able to navigate our site to identify your Grapevine Beetle. It really is an impressive species. There is probably wild grape in your wildlife preserve that provides a source of food for a population of Grapevine Beetles.
