Reader Question

About cane beetles: We’re fascinated by the extremely large flying beetles that seem to make their homes in wood or cane. One provides endless entertainment when we’re eating on our terrace, going into a perfectly round hole in a pole which is much too small for him, spending several minutes in there, and then reversing out. I’ve been told that they’re called cane beetles but when I’ve googled this I can only get information on an Australian beetle which is nothing like “ours”. Can anybody tell me their proper name so that I can find out some more about them please? sue templeman @ uwclub. net (no spaces) Archez.
