	I have always called those pesky little brown bugs that flock around
your porch light and end up dead all over the porch potato bugs.  The
much larger irridescent green ones that we used to tie a string to and
watch them bounce off the walls during the daylight hours are what we
grew up calling june bugs.  Which ones produce those horrid white grubs
and do those grody things damage my iris?  I seem to have more than my
share.  I usually squash them with a rock, no wait maybe it is a stone?
