Awww, come on guys. Be nice. I love it here and I'm trying to adjust to the the 9 inch water bugs, bats and vampires here in Georgia. I'm getting there, but it's not every day that Los Angelinos see BATS...and so many different kinds of bugs! I emailed my girl friends back in LA and told them about the bats and they thought I was lying, lol! Actually, I think I'd rather keep a can of raid by my bed at night instead of a gun any day

Welcome to Georgia!

(Okay, that's not a Palmetto bug, but I think it's still a cool picture.)

Palmetto Bug (pic): http://www.blufftontoday.com/images/palmettobug.jpg (broken link)

I think that one above is one of those doodoo beetles that rolls up poop along the ground. I didn't know we had those here until one day I saw one doing it. Rolled dog poop up in a perfect ball and was taking it home like he found a gold mine!

Oh yeah, bat poop is good for plants, so next time you see those bats, collect their poop.
