        As many of you seen and felt the same as I do, there are so many bizarre and strange things happening in our planet birds dying in mid air, fish washing off in Los Angeles Harbour,whales beaching themselves in central California and now this...

        THOUSANDS of beetles are swarming Surfers Paradise in a never before seen phenomenon that has stumped local scientists.


        The water beetle invasion captured on see on Youtube shows the large black beetles swarming around lights and dropping to the footpath on The Esplanade last night in Queensland Australia.

        Griffith University entomologist Professor Clyde Wild said he had no definitive explanation for the rare phenomenon.

        ''I've never seen swarms of these like this before, why they are at the beach front escapes any explanation I can think of,'' Prof Wild said.

        ''You might see two or three on any given night - this is literally thousands.

        ''They haven't come out of the sea, they live in fresh water and live on larvae, or eating other insects.''

        Prof Wild said he would be less surprised if the invasion had occurred in areas that had recently flooded.

        ''If there was masses of flowing water, a lot of habitat, it would make more sense.

        ''But it hasn't been that wet on the Gold Coast so it's a very curious phenomenon.

        ''They can fly very well, kilometres, but if for instance they were breeding in a river, or a swamp that had dried up, I can't see the connection as to why they would relocate to the beachfront.''

        What do you think it's causing all of this

        I couldn't stand there and film them, my arms would be going all over the place trying to keep them away from me.

        I recall the year after we had our hottest summer, we were plagued with ladybirds.  I think I prefer the ladybirds.  Some event somewhere has caused it....the Japan tsunami?

        There is something wrong about all of it. The world isn't what it use to be. I thought we were getting smarter and the world would be a better place. We are regressing instead of progressing.

        I agree with you liquor and i think you nailed it. We are the biggest contributers to the demise of planet earth with the exception of natural disasters. But then again who knows what part we really play in that too.

        Well, I was in Iowa one year and that was the year of the 17 year cicada. I was "Told" you could hear one (That's one SINGLE bug) about a 1/4 mile away. Well, we had HUNDREDS in trees and the sound was just incrediable!

        You couldn't talk or hear when they started with their mating signals...After 2 months they quit, but I didn't get alot of sleep in that time! I'll take alot of crawlies if they're quiet (Unless I'm stomping on the )

        I think we will see alot of strange things happen as a result to the disaster in Japan. What lies ahead for the rest of the world is yet to be seen.
