Never kill a beetle, but leave him to go about him important work in the garden.  Folks say bad luck and seven days soaking rain is the penalty

for stomping on a beetle.  This is because cruel behavior angers the fairies, who can visit back luck on us.  If a black beetle crawls over

your shoe, it is a warning against illness which bids you to take better care of your health.  Many nocturnal flying beetles predict the weather.
