Scott,
I like that hi-vis foam on the head of your beetles.

On a dark dreary day, dark bugs are hard to see if you throw them very far.

Tom, what the heck it takes me 45 minutes from start to finish to tie it correctly. Besides you can't buy all of the ingredients. The most important one you have to kill. :D
