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.

    Sincerely,

    David

    Hi David. I saw the first Palo Verde beetle of the year a couple days ago, and it’s likely they’ll start getting abundant in about a week, into mid-July.

    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.
