Your letter to the bugman: Hi! This gorgeous fellow tried to bite my husband on our holiday. I can’t find a pic anywhere of what it might be and was hoping for your help to identify it.
We will enjoy hearing back from you!
Thank you – The Andresen Family

This gorgeous Beetle is a Ruby Click Beetle, and we are curious about the “bite” you mentioned. Click Beetles are not venomous nor poisonous, and they are not known to “bite” humans, though we recall Eric Eaton stating once that “if it has a mouth, it can bite.”
