This Japanese beetle reminds me of the time my girls (4 years old then) refused to go outside because of a curious and very large beetle buzzing at our window. Although Japanese beetles are harmless to people they can look and sound menacing. I promised them that this bug would not bother them if they would just go with me to the car, so we could run some errands.
Unbeknownst to me, this beetle made its way into my car through a crack as I negotiated with my little ladies. After threatening my daughters of a lifetime ban of candy if they didn’t cooperate, the two girls finally rushed out of the house and into my car like Navy Seals under duress.
If you can imagine the chaos that ensued once this clumsy beetle emerged from his hiding place to buzz around our heads inside the tiny cabin of my Toyota Corolla. The girls screamed. I screamed. We all screamed and ran out of the car in terror.
My kids still love me although the trust level is just not there when it comes to being safe with beetles. This is the part where I come up with something mind blowing about life, but right now I got nothing except when you see a Japanese beetle watch yo back!
