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.
