Re: Rhinoceros Beetle

Cool!! You know what? My bronze fennel was just COVERED with black
swallowtail caterpillers last year and eaten down to the ground by now.
I guess because of the rain we have had...the fennel is just growing
like a weed...and no caterpillars to be seen. I hope they show up
sometime this year. Who knows.

  This afternoon there was a female rhinoceros beetle on my front porch. She
was so beautiful. I was going to take a picture, but my camera's battery was
dead. :o( I'm hoping to see her, or her mate, sometimes soon; then I will
take a picture. A male was on the porch a few months ago, and he was really
cool with his black horn. The one there today was pale olive green with black
"trim." She was about 2" long and at least an inch wide. I am constantly
rewarded for not using pesticides.
