I just had two hellgamites at my house (1 inside 1 outside). Those things are disgusting. I measured the one and it was nearly 4 inches with big pinchers. If you never saw one of these you should google it. It was pretty creepy looking!

I never get roaches or spider around my house for some reason, thank God.

Mosquitoes feast on me though especially after all this rain with the vicinity of the river.. as for bees, Bumble bees seem to be around my shrubs frequently.

That's why you need to become a lawyer, mosquitoes won't bite you - professional courtesy

wow, that's nasty. if you don't mind me asking, at which restaurant did this happen? i'd like to know so that i can be sure to avoid it in the future.

if you'd rather not mention the place, don't worry about it.

given the choice, i'd rather have garden bugs instead of roaches, too. roaches are the worst of the worst.
