You would be amazed what you get when you google something like "giant mutant earwig." As one does.

I pulled the rip cord and bailed out of this thread on post #21.

Nuteks don't do bugs.

I "do" bugs ...... usually with a rolled up newspaper or other convenient weapon!

I saw an eastern king snake last Tuesday, and a black snake last Wednesday, both are harmless to humans, but eat rodents, amphibians, and reptiles, including copperheads.

This thread has helped me solve a problem. A couple of years ago I found what looked like a small, flat, black spider or tick in the kitchen...but it had lobster type claws at the front. I put it in a container so I could get a better look at it. It kept lifting it's front claws up...like a crab or lobster. Anyway...yesterday I Googled and found out it was a Pseudoscorpion.

I don't mind snakes. They fall below the maximum permissible leg threshold.

The appear to have the most bizarre mating habits.


Still, they will keep your population of carpet beetles down.

BE "useful" once every couple of years. Sounds about right!

Thank goodness we don't have the same mating ritual.

Carpet beetles *shudder*...thank goodness we don't have carpets or rugs.
