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.

My thoughts are just one rodent in the house is one to many. Wherever you live  there is probably a  Pest Management Professional

Amazing science – pantry pests gut microbes may be able to consume plastic.

Pantry pests harbor plastic-chomping bacteria” A few insects use their guts to break down wood and various other harder to digest type food – top one in my mind are termites. Termites use a protozoa to break down cellulose which they gather on a daily basis.

 

It is amazing to me that animals, insects and other forms of life adapt to human life on this planet. Can’t wait to see what is next? Anyone else heard of any amazing type critters?
