I'm not a fan of Junebugs, the ones that I have seen look similar to Caramel Candy. It's quite akward. O.e
I use to have one crawling on my TV a few years back, it was weird since that was the first time I saw that type of bug.

I've also realized that bugs are starting to look quite weird these days, I've seen some that look like fuzzballs... little peices of string ect.

No odd bugs to be seen here, do you have any pictures/names? o.o

Also, in my other post I stated how ants infest our house each summer, well, it has already started. I couldn't even put my apple down for a moment just now without ants immediatly attacking it.

Junebugs are quite nice. I like them.

Yes, ants attack my house in the summer too.

There are millions of Junebugs in June. . . (Obvious, right?). The swarm! XD Most of them are in the pool, and me being so kind help them out.

Also, summer is the time where all the love bugs come out, and you have to constantly wash the front of your car of dead bugs. O.e

Summer is by far, the buggiest time of year.

Question: Did it have wings? Or was it like a spider?

Not really, it didn't have wings and it didn't look like a spider. In fact, it looked more like a fuzzy spider.

So it had a spider figure? Here is a link to a website that might be helpful, while searching for a bug.

Thanks Solare, I'll be sure to check it out. (if I can muster enough curage to look at them. o.e)
Though I ended up typing the wrong thing, I ment to say it looked more like a fuzzy beatle.... I ended up typing Spider by mistake.

Hehe, it's been a while since I've seen a lot of June bugs; there are a lot in Delaware during the summer, but I usually leave for vacation. I'm staying home this summer though, so I better start preparing for the invasion. x3

I'm quite excited though because summer means that fireflies are going to come out again^^

what's so exciting about fireflies? i've never really found them interesting,to be honest.
I'm just not looking forward to being bitten by mosquitoes and horseflies.

I've always had a fascination with fireflies; perhaps it's because I always use to enjoy catching them when I was younger and making little lanterns by putting a bunch of fireflies in a jar^^ Their luminescence is very interesting to me.

I detest mosquitoes; they thrive here in the marshes. I never want to go outside when the mosquitoes are out.

I also dislike those pesty mosquitos. For some reason they seem attracted to my blood, I can't go outside in the late spring all the way to early to mid fall without getting bit by at least two.

I have always loved fireflies. I find it fascinating how they glow like they do. And I have wished several times as a child that I, to, could glow. Though I don't think I'd want to walk around all night glowing. ^^"

In all honesty, I never saw a firefly out here... and I really don't want those mosquitos to invade again. Their buzzing and nomming is terrible.

I've never seen a firefly either to be honest. I believe that they would be quite interesting, considering how they glow like that. (I like glowing/shiny objects. 8D)

I don't like Mosquitoes at all, they sometimes use me as a blood-buffet.... I can't go a summer without being bitten.
Sometimes they'll sneak into the garbage can and then come out at night. O.e

I also have never seen a firefly, to be honest as well! xP I would love to watch one though, I love glowing things too! ^^

As for mosquitoes, I don't really have problems with them, even in summer. =] I don't know, maybe they dislike the taste of my blood, and I rarely get bitten. I remember when I went camping with my brother, the next morning he was bitten from top to bottom and I had not even one bite! xP
