My Bugs on 'speed' point illustrated!

So as I was catching up on my blogging buddies I hear an ominous buzzing above my head, look up and see this monster! I think it's a wasp but hell it's so darned big and disjointed, I wasn't at all sure?

Anyway off I run to get my trusty and extremely old bug catcher as the Hubster is asleep and after a bit of jigging around I get him, photograph him and then release him outside. This is such a clever contraption, as being clear they don't see it coming and then you just slide the trapdoor shut on them and remove to the outside.

I have never seen another one again and will be doing everything I can to keep this one in active service living here! But that was a big ol' thingummyjig!

Ah, now that's something I don't fancy at all, the bugs and things.

Ick, ick, ick!!! I like that catcher dealy....I'd like something like that, too! They always get in our front porch all summer long... M.

If only there were enough bug catchers for my apartment! Girl be careful - their sting aches!

The bug looks more like some sort of hornet than a wasp. That looks like a clever contraption, I could do with one of those.

Oh, cool, I want one of those!! That looks so simple, yet super handy. Have you seen the electric fly swatters (that look like little tennis rackets)? They rock!

There's something super satisfying about frying the little suckers.

Aha the Hubster tells me this is a mud-dobber and might be able to sting

What an awesome piece of equipment!

That's a very scary looking bug, and it definitely looks as if it would give you a nasty sting.
