My husband the zoologist/science teacher and the rest of the science department are stumped. LOL. We need to call for the big guys!
For the past month the bug keeps flying at my sister when she sits outside. She lives in Fresno, CA and it is hot now. August weather has been over 100 degrees. 106 degrees for the past week. The bug is attracted to her and seems to fly at her anytime she is outside. We both have blond hair. She smokes a vapor pipe when she is outside. It is a big bug. It is probably the size of 1/2 of a humans palm. My sister said a dashound dog. LOL
You can hear the flutter of the wings! Is it dangerous?

This is a Scarab Beetle commonly called a Figeater. They are harmless, though quite intimidating when they buzz noisily about.
