CBC has a story on Regina’s ongoing beetle siege:

The bugs come out at night and, attracted to damp concrete, can accumulate in large numbers before they die on the sidewalk to create a crunchy carpet in the morning. Some nightspots have also had to contend with the bugs on their outdoor patios. “I’ve noticed it during the night-time mainly,” Katie Mantei, the manager of a Regina downtown coffee shop, said Tuesday. “[Bugs] falling from the overhang.”

You tell ’em,  Katie.

Meanwhile on Facebook, people are divided: “Where did they come from? I poured out my watering can just now and it was mostly beetles,” said one commentator on some guy’s page. “What the hee haw?” added another. “Tie some dental floss around them and take’m for walkypoos!” suggested a third.

Beetles. Crazy!

  1. Everyone knows that a plague of beetles heralds the apocalypse. Better stock up on water…oh.

  2. When the beetles die on the floor of my apartment building laundry room, they become instant food for the ant population!

    Yaaaaaaaaaay! :/
