The computer is still broken. So here at Myrmecos Blog we’re still on vacation. I should be back online within a week or two.
Please let me know when the beetles are flying as I would like to drive out to Tucson and collect a few. A friend and I were in Palo Verde, California last weekend and we collected a few click beetles in the daytime and a few long horned beetles at night via light.
I would like to hear from you.

As for monsoon beetles, you’ll need to watch the weather to time your visit to spots that have received recent rain. The monsoon is imminent, but hasn’t yet arrived.
