As someone that was bitten by a Black Widow as a small kid...

KILL THEM ALL!

There are plenty of other spiders that will take their place and function.

Cool idea! I am both intrigued and grossed out by insects. Something about an exoskeleton creeps me out!

Check out the Venezuela Poodle Moth!

Contrary to internet experts' opinion it is real.

That moth looks kitted for polar regions, not Venezuela. The others on the link look Mardi Gras.

I distinctly recall Maggie identifying Jiggs as an insect. She then tried to do him in by throwing the nearest object at him. Bringing Up Father. By McManus?

One of the largest insects in the world. Allowed through customs when I came back to the USA, but the border control officer wasn't supposed to let it through. Yeah for good graces!

Just stumbled onto the thread - awesome shots, all.

Ron mentioned stumpfu*kers a while ago upthread. God how I hated those damned things. No bite mark, but when they bit you it would feel like an electric shock going through you. We had one fire north of Reno where the ground was literally moving with a carpet of them.

I have been trying to find a picture but haven't had any luck, so a description will have to do...

We were cold trailing a fire near Pahrump on July 4th..02? I think. Anyways, I put my hand down to check the root clump of a Joshua tree and got hit by about 40 of the bastards on my arm ( I had the sleeves rolled up as it was about 110 at the time.)
I started doing the "Stumpfu*ker Dance" which consists of banging on the affected body part, along with yelling "ARRRRGH STUMPFU*KERS GET OFFA MEEE" and my partner is dancing around me trying to get his camera out to take a picture of the swarm all over my arm instead of helping get them off...thanks Billy....
Anyways it was a great shot of me looking like the world had ended and my pulaski flying off while I'm trying to kill the damned things...sorry to have lost it, was a classic shot of the joys of firefighting.

Keep up the awesome shots of the creepy crawlies!
