Bugs are ugly

So, I'm at work all night, and my workplace is near a lake

and there are alot of lights

and so I go outside for a cigarette

and I turn, and something is flying towards me through the air

and it's big, and it's ugly

So I end up jumping out the way yelling obscenities, and it hits wall behind me with a loud "twack" noise

and it falls to the ground, and it's about 4 inches long, and it turns out it's a Giant Water Bug. Y'know, the kind that bite and are big and ugly.

And I look around

And there are lots and lots and lots of them flying around, and crawling around, and generally being kind of scary looking


So I caught some

    Bugs are generally only scary if you are a 7 year old girl.

    But, as you can clearly see. Spiders are terrifying.

    I don't care who you are, if you are not expecting it and a spider comes into contact with your skin, you flip the fuck out. It is what happens unless you are a zombie.

    One time, I remember when I was a kid, and I was playing Doom, which is scary if you are a kid like I was, so I'm already on edge, and this big freaking spider slowly descended between my eyes and the computer monitor on a silken strand.

    And I jumped

    We only have small spiders here, and they look harmless enough

    I can understand people not wanting to deal with bigger spiders, but people seem to freak out over the small ones as well

    fucking pussies

    I understand that they're called potato bugs in some parts of the country. Distinct from mole crickets. I grew up calling them "cara de niño," but switched to "Jerusalem cricket" when I started getting into entomology in a big way.

    what do spiders do during the harsh cold winter? Do they hibernate in some way or do they just persevere?

    Ah, ok. I've never seen either, but then, Giant Water Bugs were are sort of an uncommon sight around here. You find the odd dead one on the road, but I have never seen such a swarm of them as I did last night. 50 or more.



    also, during one really rainy season a few years back when water began seeping into the basement, upon drying ants began to come in here. I can't stand ants. A spider or two, that's fine, it can have a little corner to eat bugs in, but creeping waves of little biological swarms brings to mind the Sand Kings way too much. Got rid of them with some raid traps.

    Also, termite queens are super ugly and I hope I never have to see one in real life.

    I have nothing but respect for a species who can spend all their time rolling up little balls of crap and still make it into a pantheon. That's just good public relations right there.

    Yeah, I had a friend who spent a year in Costa Rica. He used to send me pictures of the most awesome beetles. So jealous.

    You know what about Dung Beetles, they released hundreds of thousands in my local area to try and get rid of the dog poop problem. I saw some around for a couple of months but I haven't seen one since, this was several years ago, maybe I just don't get outside anymore. But I think I do, or maybe I was always on the grass looking for them. THEY ARE GONE.

    I watched three seconds of that, and then had to turn it off...ew.

    Don't, on average, people eat like 5 - 10 spiders a year in their sleep?

    But they're more deadly if it's an AIDs cock.
