Wharf Borer

Wharf borer are in flight now emerging from their homes where they spent their time as larvae.

I encounter this False Blister Beetle typically in buildings. They emerge from under the concrete where there is buried construction material(wood) that is moist. They typically go towards the light thinking they might be able to go outside.

I always find them feeding on Chinese Lantern Plant later during the season. They also like to feed on Mint pollen
