IMG_5512.jpeg.77ff9144090fdc6483f7514245b9da3b.jpegWeirdest thing this morning, a bumblebee comes onto the back porch buzzing like a chain saw. Wifey heads for the door! It just stayed there for about 5 minutes. I get my phone and try to get the close up, sucker has a Japanese beetle stabbed in the back. Tried to get different angles but the bee got pissed and took off into the planter on the railing, where it lost the beetle flying around from branch to branch. It seemed to have a considerable looking set of mandibles, pointy like a mosquito might have.  Did it stick a beetle when it was on a flower, by mistake, looking for nectar, or is this a new form of Jap beetle control?

Maybe you guys can help? Kid found this the other day on the carpet. We are in Boston, MA. Never saw these before. I know I have carpet beetles but this isn't it. It's very thin , many legs and very slow. This is just about under 1/2" long.
