What is this bug?

on_greenthumbJune 12, 2013

Found it flying around outside the house....it landed on my husbands shirt and wasn't shy about it. It took quite a bit of nudging to get off (waving my hand past it didn't faze it....I had to actually brush it off). Finally it landed in the grass...

The larvae of click beetles live in the soil and are called wire worms. They feed on many different plant roots and seeds.

The larva of some Click Beetles digest decaying plant material while the larva of others may feed on grass roots or even more desirous plant roots. Some may be considered pests while others may not.
The adults can be kind of interesting to watch.
