West Virginia, USA September 21, 2017 Size: 2 inches?
ive seen this grub before. it stays underground. it's fat, white, has a small head and red dots along its sides. im only interested in what it is now because my duck came up and ate this one while i was filming it, and i want to make sure it wont cause some grotesque alien birth, though i doubt it will.
id also like to know what the other bug is. it flies in swarms, has never stung/bitten me, is all black with an orange behind with two yellow "eyes", and blue iridescent wings like a mud dauber. ive never seen them dig before but this one was burrowing. you can see its behind in the hole in front of the grub.
