What the Bug??!

Big Boss and I were out in the garden the other day…no, I was in the garden…he was cutting down some “volunteer” trees for me.  YAY!!

Side note: I never though I’d EVER ask him to cut down anything because of his reputation with green things that I don’t want cut down but he does anyway.  Anyway…yes, I am redundant…trees in Kansas that you DON’T want come up like weeds…while trees in Kansas that you DO want have to babied and coddled and nursed. *le sigh*

So he’s cutting and I’m pulling…weeds, that is.  I go in for water bottles and he hollers for me to come look.

He was about 1 1/2" long and 3/4" wide.  And ugly.

He was about 1 1/2″ long and 3/4″ wide. And ugly.

So I did.  Ick. That was one ugly honking bug.  No idea what it is, but U-G-L-Y!

Any ideas about the name of this dude?  Look under “ugly”….

    Petrified Fence Post Beetle…just made that up! That bugs IS ugly. It looks as if it’s made of cast iron and are those cobwebs formed on the antenna? Maybe it’s a Rumpelstiltskin Borer…he died of boredom. 😀 I’ll leave now….

    It’s a BOB (Big Ol’ Bug). or as my old Pop use to say, it’s a BAB (you figure it out).
