Bane of Bugs

Monday, July 11, 2005

Well, I haven’t updated the blog because I haven’t had access to the internet until now.

The past few days have been fraught with insects, bugs, and creatures of all kinds. However, my cousin showed me the coolest device. It looks like a tennis racquet, but it’s actually a zapper. One presses a button to activate it, and then POP! The bug dies immediately.

Another interesting insect endeavour was this red ant. I’ll call her Sue. Sue had this watermelon seed that was twice her size, and she dragged it down a ninety-degree wall. After pulling the thing for about two thirty yards (about twenty minutes), she made it. It was fascinating watching her lose the trail, drop the seed, find the trail, and track back to grab to the seed. She finally made it to her nesting ground, but whether or not it fitted into the hole, I couldn’t say.

Last night I was up until 2 AM on the computer, so now I’ve got to go do something else. Until next time, Daquell out.
