We live in southern Saskatchewan, Canada. We live in a very rural area of the province and grow lots of grain.
Found it in late June.

Nuttall's Blister Beetle

You should exercise caution when handling Nuttall’s Blister Beetle, Lytta nuttalli, as well as other members of the family Meloidae.  Blister Beetles can secrete a substance called cantharidin that can cause skin to blister.
