NGC what kind of bug is this
« on: June 10, 2021, 10:22:18 PM »
I googled cockroach and it doesn't quite look like that. Never seen anything like it in Minnesota.






found in our kitchen sink, how did it get there? Drains had normal cover stopper with the small holes.

Palo Verde beetles are huge and this one looks small by comparison.

Pinch bug. Not to be confused with earwigs called Pincher bugs..
It's just a beetle.. no big deal.

Pretty sure it's a Stag beetle. Boy is she pissed to be stuck inside of a jar with the back yard blues again.
They fly so that's how it got in the house, probably came with the garden dirt we spread last night.

I didn't really see one either. Might never know, we let him go at the neighbors yard full of chickens so probably pecked up by now.
