    Thanks all for your concern... Clubsnap folks are a caring community...
    Thank God the beetle did not bite through. But it got stuck and couldn't crawl out backwards...
    GP could see a black line near the ear drum and tot it was a leg still lodged in there. But later we went to a specialist and it turned out to be a hair.

    This brings up another thought... have any beetles actually managed to really go in deep? What happens in this case? It's quite scary as during this wet and humid weather now we have a lot of other insects such as flying ants emerging and who knows where they'll go when you're asleep.

    actually it was quite common to have cockroaches getting into ears in the past. solution is to use vinegar to flush them out.
    sigh.

    When I was new to cross country cycling, I used to cycle with my mouth open. Bad idea. Quite a few bugs flew into my mouth and down my throat. I'm not sure what they were, but I could feel the wings and legs of whatever it was.

    Really, keep your mouth shut while cycling, man...
