Some really strange bugs

My days are never boring. Time flies by so quickly because there is always something new to see. I’ve been interested in bugs my whole life and doing professional exterminating for 26 years so you’d think by now I would be bored and seen everything. Not so fast.

Hardly a week goes by when I don’t see at least one new bug. I do my best to research them and try and take a picture so if nothing else I can go on ‘what’s that bug‘ to see if they can identify him. Mostly the new insects I see are beneficial ones and not something that will invade your home. I’m a paid killer by trade but I never want to kill Dung beetle or a Assassin bug or an Orb spider just because they have names that are negative and have wandered in I’d still rather scoop them up and put them outside.

For 98% of my clients however a bug is a bug and they want it dead, NOW. People hate the idea of their home being invaded by any insect and if the bug happens to be brightly colored or has huge ‘fang’ like appendages they really freak.

I found an awesome article with some sweet pictures of the strangest bugs I’ve ever seen. Some make perfect sense to me why they are disguised as a leaf or flower but I can’t figure out a couple. Maybe you’ll have better luck but in any event check this cool site out for some really strange bugs. Let me know what you think and if you’d have the courage to even attempt to swat one these if you found it in your home.
