    Just in time for a looming Halloween season, there's been an outbreak of bugs at the Center.

    Box Elder bugs I think, mostly harmless. We haven't had an invasion of those in several years. We get mostly stink bugs in the autumn.

    Gawd, I hate those little basturds! even after washing your hands twice the stink won't go away. But I have a trick, two tissues/Kleenexes grab the bastard up and a quick flush into oblivion :razz:. Job done. w/ mimimum stink.

    The key is to not squeeze or pinch them, the name is well deserved. I get one off the screen, say, into my hand and toss it outside. Or flick it outside if I can, especially if it's on the outside of a screen.

    Toads are cool.


    Where I grew up we had a small lake at the end of the street teeming with toads, fish, crayfish, bullfrogs, turtles.

    We'd catch and keep toads all the time, and I even grew my own once from a bunch of eggs we got right after mating season.

    Ours were bufo americanus in various colors

    I tried raising them too unfortunately they all went from a gelatinous mass of eggs in a jar, into toad-kill. I had better luck w/ blue-gill, catfish and craw-dads, guess ya' had to "hold your mouth and bobber right. "

    We have a new family member! His name is Sonny and he's about 9 months old. Note: he isn't yellow like this pic looks - the lighting in my living room did that. He's brown and white.
