It looks like some kind of cricket.

Ants bug me the most. I hate the way they attack in such great numbers.

Gaaaaaaahhh!

That thing is nasty!

*leaves thread forever*

One thing is for certain: there is no stopping them; the ants will soon be here. And I, for one, welcome our new insect overlords. Iíd like to remind them that as a trusted TV personality, I can be helpful in rounding up others to toil in their underground sugar caves.

Bugs don't bug me much.

Release some of those in your yard, they'll take care of that bug:

I hate Cave Crickets anyplace especially in the house. These suckers can really jump to. If you try whacking them with a broom or your foot they seem to jump right at you.

I don't have a problem with bugs until they get to a certain size or they decide to walk on me, then they must die. Any insect over an inch to inch and half. That scene in Temple of Doom would freak me out if I were there

So long as they don't bite or sting, I don't mind them. I was once hauling away some garbage with a friend. Some old wood broke as we were lifting it over our heads. About 30 ants and spiders fell onto the back of my neck. I calmly asked him to come over and remove them.

Just imagine if bugs like this were the size of cats. We'd be fuckeded.

That about how I feel about it. I usually don't have a problem w/ them unless they are on me.

Bugs generally don't bother me. Although when I was a kid Potato Bugs really freaked me out because they were so big.

Spiders bother me more than bugs.

I agree...we have ants and spiders around here. The ants are annoying, but some of the spiders are just scary looking.

matome 05-20-07 08:29 AM

Ugh, I hate bugs

Itís a Northern Mole Cricket (Gryllotalpa Hexadactyla) They can be heard chirping from their burrows.

ur out of luk! :p

Ants represent the vast majority of bio mass on this planet. Weigh every other biological thing on the planet and then multiply that times about 4 (or maybe 40; I can't remember for sure. It's at least 4). That's how much the ants weigh. They won a long time ago.

Are you referring to this unholy monster? These are actually called Jerusalem Crickets and they are the main reason Palestinians are so pissed off. These fuckers freak me out to this day.
Hereís what a real potato bug looks like:

Couldnít find an actual image because when I Googled potato bugs-I got a bunch of pictures of Jerusalem Crickets! I grew up calling sow bugs potato bugs.

Ravenous 05-20-07 02:33 PM

All I hate are spiders. The only reason I 'fear' them is because I dont want to run into a brown recluse (which I have run into). These guys bite and their venom kills your nerves and skin, leaving you disfigured. I fear that.

So no bugs bother me, except I will kill ANY spider I see just in case. I wont run from it, I'll work hard to smash him! :mad:
