“…there’s a Cockroach in my kitchen and it’s alive…!”
I doubted very much that there was a cockroach & thought it far more likely to be the demented flying billiard ball Cockchafer beetle. I was right, it’s a Cockchafer beetle boy. (7 “fingers” for the boys, 6 for the girls)
I took a pot, but it prefered to sit on my hand, I think it liked me. LOL. Sarah, number 4 of my “adopted brood” and her 9 year old son were terrified of this poor little May beetle, refusing to stand within 6 feet of him. I brought him home, took a few photos, and off he flew into the wide blue yonder.
