Attack of the Kelkatus

Last night, I heard tappings on the window. Accustomed to such things, and knowing that they are bugs, I ignored them. Until this morning, when dad showed me the photos he had taken.

They look like mysterious beings from outer space.

Or furries.

Or even flowers.

This starts to look like the ROFL Waffles auction, but in this case the kelkatus is stealing the garbage bin!

Not as bad as some years before, when the porch was covered with them! I had to wade through, so bad was the condition. The kelkatus usually come when the moon is full (read: high tide) and/or very heavy rainy days.

But Mother Nature is beautiful, ain't she?

Goodness!! Luckily you close your windows. Imagine they landed on you! Yucky!

I hate those.... It just makes the surroundings dirty. Got to switch off light every time it rainned heavily and suspect of them to be coming in. Haih... Nature.

I don't want to be sleeping on a bed of them, gina!

Teri, coral? How so?

They say birds of a feather flock together, but this is sooo bizarre.

surfnux, I grabbed a can of Shieldtox, open the windows for a moment and sprayed them. Hopefully.
