Well you’d be right if you guessed the “Walking Stick”, those things just hang on branches and wait motionless for long periods of time. They found this thing in Vietnam and I think are amazing in design.
Check the story out.
Some people swear by it but it appears there may not be enough data to prove that it works.
So the other day I was watching “Shark Tank” and was really intrigued with a young eco-entrepreneur Henry J. Miller (his words). Check out his Honey with spices Webpage and FaceBook page or his Twitter page.
I understand the role of honeybees and I understand the risk they pose to the general public especially in the South. We sell honey in our little store and I think this idea from Henry is great – so please visit his site and if you can why don’t you give his honey a try.
My first guess without having the actual bug is that this little bug is a Tarantula Hawk species “Pepsis”. Tarantula Hawk wasp paralyze spiders and then lay eggs on them and the little baby wasp has something to eat. Morbid but that is life with bugs. They come with a BIG sting but rarely ever sting, I’ve heard they have the second most painful sting in the world.
Steer clear of these wasps and let them have access to all the spiders out there.
Tailless Whip Scorpion They are nocturnal arachnids found here in Arizona. They commonly use their long, delicate, whip-like, antenniform front legs as sensory organs to search for prey in the dark. They don’t have stingers and technically they really aren’t spiders but they are in the same Class Arachnida. They do look rather odd but they eat cockroaches and other small insects. Have you seen any at your home?
