I have new respect for bugs after STILL having a u shaped scar on my arm from being stung by a stinging caterpillar 5 years ago...

The walk in clinic in NC had everyone look at my forearm swelled up to the size of a football... Apparently it got discussed in a medical seminar later. No one could identify what type it was. :confused:

AuEagle, I have one of those Bug-A-Salt guns. It'll knock 'em for a loop, but hasn't got enough power to kill one. Don't waste your money. :down:

Did it have purple hairs? I got stung by one at Ft Bragg years ago.

No it was like a gray and black woolly worm with longer black stinging hairs over its entire body. I have seen packsaddles with one spot of longer stinging hairs, but they are usually white, green, or yellow. I did not recover it and never saw a pic that looked exactly like it.

It is pretty freaky that something as  cool as a lightning bug starts out like that.

Never  ever seen one of those..But can see the firefly in it.

 

We had a cocoon of some  foam looking stuff..It was praying mantises..was super cool to watch them little guys hatch.

As a kid I found a cocoon and brought it in. Put it in a jar with holes pinched in lid. Turned out to be Praying Mantises The holes were too big and they were everywhere. Years later, I still found a few dead ones under my dresser when I moved out. Lol
