What do you call blueberries playing the guitar? A jam session. What do you call a sad strawberry? A blueberry. What did one blueberry say to the other blueberry? If you weren’t so sweet, we wouldn’t be in this jam!
All jokes aside…
Now, what do you call these walking, formation-creating blueberries? This one is serious, we don’t know! And neither does Mandy, who recorded these little blueberry buggers after discovering them on the exterior of her home in Houston, Texas.
Clueless about what these insects are, she just knew this was the first time she’d ever seen anything like them.
Drum & Bugle Corps of the insect world?
They sure look like blueberries with legs. And, they appear to be a very confident group of fruit, speedily creating a marching band-like formation, pausing, and then creating another one! Check out the video below.
Drum and Bugle Corps fans take note! Perhaps The Blue Devils, The Blue Knights, or The Bluecoats, might consider adopting them as their honorary mascot!
Not edible! (we think)
Whatever it is that Mandy has recorded and posted here, we strongly urge anyone who also comes across a critter crew like this to resist any temptation to eat them.
Have you ever seen these before? Did they escape from a muffin or do they actually have a name?
When Mandy first put this video up on her YouTube page, suggestions came of what they might be came marching in.
Someone suggested that they are southern green stink bug nymphs. Green? These are also much rounder than those typical oblong bugs.
Someone else thought they were kudzu bugs, which are also stink bugs, except those are also usually green.
But, to our knowledge, nobody has yet been able to properly identify them with 100 percent authority. For now, let’s call them Insecta Cyanococcus (Latin for blueberry insect)!
These may be active little creatures, but they are certainly not big; about the size of a blueberry.
What the heck are these?
If you know what these are, please, let us know!
