The bug-grinder

Added Tue, 11/10/2016
Version type

"The death clock" - so many peoples called "ticking" sounds of some furniture and house borers (Anobiidae), which live in wood products. These kinds of grinders produce sounds similar to the sound of a ticking clock, rhythmically hitting my head on the wall of their moves in the wood. These sounds are a way of attracting females. These bugs are ubiquitous and live in dead or dying wood.

Also these sounds could be mistaken for a connection with spirits or aliens.
