Charlotte saw this beetle around the front door – the ivory spotted longhorn beetle. It has an interesting story: the beetle lays eggs in hardwood, when the new beetles hatch they dig their way out of the hardwood, which might take a few years. And the hardwood might be furniture by that time. Allegedly, these beetles could live up to forty years, but other sources dispute that.
My captures are a bit fuzzy – I caught this bug late in the evening and did not have much time to make adjustments before he flew away. I told the kids to be on the lookout for bore holes in our furniture.
