I was sitting my recliner and my daughter says OMG something just ran under the chair. I was like ok so I get up and pick up the chair to see what is underneath it. Well I have never ever seen a bug so big in my entire life this thing was like 2 inches long and it looked like a centipede with thousands of legs on it. To top it off the thing was fat as well. This whole thing with this bug has got me so freaked out I never want to see any kinda bug again. I though enjoyed watching my husband swat and kill this nasty thing and take it outta my house. UGH! Ever have a problem like this with an incect??? I am still freaking out about this I hope there aren't any more creeping around here!!!
This is kind of different than what you're asking...but....
One day, I was sitting on the living room couch watching TV. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw something moving. Now, it was dark except the TV, so I couldn't really see what it was, but it looked huge. So, I'm kind of keeping an eye on it, and then, it jumped! Just about gave me a heart attack. So, I jump up and turn the light on. Here, it was a cricket...but it was the biggest damned cricket I've ever seen!
I didn't know cockroaches could fly until I visited my dd in el paso. They are common and hard to get rid of. Here in ny, we have lots of spiders, the little ones with fat segments. I catch house bugs to put them out or show them to my granddaughter in a magnifying lidded jar. We are fond of snails. We fed slugs dog kibble for a 7th grade science project.
