We always called them Rain Bugs. Been living with them at times for ever and never had a problem. They seem to show up around the rainy season.
Hmm, velvety. He looks yummy; how would you prepare him? Stir-fried with bok choi? Chocolate dipped?;0) just kidding. So what is his name?
I'm having calf viewing withdrawals over here. Velvet bugs just ain't gonna cut it. (But it's pretty)
Mr. Wells - am trying to catch up on things @ tfl -sorry about how it went with Bob - hopefully, her parting legacy to Ben was a king sized dose of colostrum - the little guys have to be on the tough side just to make it down in that country - Ben certainly has a better shot with you on his side.You probably have seen these & have more advice and help than you need, but thought I'd throw in my 2¢ too - good luck.Recent research has indicated that many scour cases can be directly related to lack of colostrum intake by the newborn calf. A calf that is well mothered and consumes 1 to 2 quarts of colostrum in the first few hours after birth absorbs a higher level of antibodies and is far less susceptible to scours and other calfhood diseases.scoursscours/UC Davis

Amazingly intense color on that bug. Never seen one before. I bet the birds love 'em!
Cool critter, would love to see one some day!
