Passengers Trapped On Train After Woman Throws Cartons of Bugs
At least they were fresh.... I wonder if she got them in bulk at Costco... or found them locally sourced?
Where's Samuel L. Jackson when you need him?
Tsar I've often wondered if it's cruel to sell 'em in bulk like that
Crickets and worms? Poor little things!
I lived for about a year in Okeechobee Fla. Yes, it's as horrible as it sounds.
I'll never forget this one time I went into the post office. Someone had a business that wholesaled crickets to to bait and tackle shops and such. They must have been sending out that day to multiple buyers. I remember there were boxes stacked up taller then a person, many, many stacks of boxes. Like several hundred. Each one contained 1000 to 5000 crickets.
I learned that before shipping they chill the crickets down to shut them up.
Unfortunately, they warmed up inside the post office.
I live with crickets off and on in the summer. I like them and don't mind the noise, they are sort of cute in their way. I do step on them on purpose if they get into the hallway by the bedroom but I feel immediately guilty. So far, I've gotten by without cricket hoards invading. Thing is, I take them as only after water, and they tend to show up one at a time. As each year goes by, I get less and less anti-cricket, more pro cricket.
I've had two lizards come in this year too, but I managed to scoot them out the door. I suppose they are looking for water too, don't know.
I'm not adept enough to catch a cricket with a container - thus to let out the door - as they are speedsters.
Oss I concur most wholeheartedly. Major guilt when I feel compelled to spray an influx of ants around my bed and in my pants
I'm mean about smallish ants that come inside since the ones here bite me and I'm allergic to the bites. In this case, no pity. But, ants not in my house, I let them alone. The big ones in the front sand area never try to come in, and I gather trying to evict a queen could cause more grief. They have their life, I have mine.
I'd often wondered during that last incursion how far away their hill. Assuming they're pretty desperate since we've been having a bit of hot, dry weather as you're probably aware
Problems arise leaving water going outside or even resting in small dishes, says me who has designed many fountains, has seen incredibly gorgeous fountains, but worry about mosquitoes. I solved it in my place earlier with gambusa fish in my small pond.. the city of L.A. provided them.
Thanks Oss, it's not everyday.....
. I feel compelled to spray an influx of ants ... in my pants
Oh Nuts! Just when the whole thing started to give you a big thrill!...
Yea Mil, Nature's retribution
Hey, look, I've used an acronym for once.
