(kitchener ontario canada) we were wondering if you could tell us what kind of bug this if you could let me know either way that would be great thanks
That is a large click beetle called the Eyed Elater or Eyed Click beetle. The large eye like spots make it very easy to identify. The adults do come to lights, esp in the spring and early summer.
These are found in woodlands. The adults may feed on some nectar. The larvae are predatory in decaying wood, eating grubs of wood-boring beetles like (Cerambycidae or longhorn beetles).
Neat large beetles to find!
