Hi there,
This bug was outside my door yesterday. I live in Charlotte, NC. Any idea what it is?
Signature: Charlotte, NC


Hi Charlotte,
Had you turned off the lights, you might have been treated to seeing this Glowworm in the genus 
Phengodes glow, like this image from our archives.

Thank you so much!  My friends thought it was a palmetto bug egg/larvae, etc.  Whew.  I am relieved!

Young Palmetto Bugs look just like adults, but smaller and without wings.
