Question of the Week: Eyed Click Beetle

Last week the question was:  What is this insect?


This is an eyed click beetle.  They are named for the clicking sound they often make if handles or threatened.  They have a hinge between their head and thorax and make the clicking sound by quickly snapping their head forward, almost like head banging.  They can also use this movement to right themselves if flipped over on their back.  For more info, take a look at this page.


Here is this week’s question:  What are the bugs all over the side of this dock?
