Ugh. I can remember walking around and those buggers were everywhere! Up along the Shopping Centre sidewalks were smeared with smushed up June Bugs, and walking under a street light was an awful experience. They would be milling around and banging into you and getting in your hair and under your coats and ...eeeeewwwwwww!!
I don't think they were actually the proper 'June Bug' but that's what everyone called them. Not pretty insects either...dull in black. About an inch and a half long and their shells would open and their big wings would come out. They really did make a 'Whirrrring' noise.
