Time for yet another Wordle of the day! It’s Thursday, July 21, 2022 and we’re solving Wordle 397 today. If you’re here having issues guessing the correct word, we’re here to help. Whether you need a few hints to get you on the right track or you’re simply looking for the answer as a means of keeping your score intact, we’re here to help. Today’s word is pretty unique, so don’t worry about there being too many potential solutions.
We’re going to give some hints first before sharing the answer. If you just want said answer, scroll to the very bottom of the article. It’s right there in bold text below the aforementioned “SPOILER WARNING.” For those of you who just want a tiny nudge in the right direction, the next section includes both some easy hints (whether the word is a noun or a verb, a very broad category of what it could be, etc.) followed by some more specific clues. The latter should all but tell you what the word is.
Today’s Wordle Word Hints of the Day: #397
In this section, we try to keep things vague and only point you in the right direction. Hints at this stage will be more about the meaning of the word, rather than any specific letters that are used in the word itself. We also won’t use other methods like “rhymes with,” “sounds similar to,” and the like. More specific hints are included just after that — finally followed by the full solution after a Wordle spoiler warning. Figured we’d just warn you one last time!
These first hints will steer you in a general direction without giving too much away!
It is a noun.
It’s a type of bug!
Even with those two hints, there are still plenty more possibilities to choose from. We’ll try to narrow things down in the next section!
More Specific Hints
You still totally get credit (and keep your streak) if you need these beefier hints. Let’s narrow it down and get a bit more specific.

Ladybugs (or ladybirds for our overheating UK friends) love to eat them!
Still drawing a blank? Think about it some more or scroll down for the final answer reveal.
