More House Guests: This is an ongoing post of visitors to my house.
How could I have overlooked the most prevalent of my house guests?
Well, they are hard to photograph because I am too busy swatting at them.
Luckily I have a zapper! My new best friend!! Best $5 spent in Ecuador!!
My mom still jokes about how much fun I had the first time I used one of these.
The result of about 30 minutes of bug zapping! This is the killing tile, where I drop all the dead skeeters.
The mosquitoes are nothing like they were during the rainy season. Now, there are a few here and there. During rainy season, you would have to cut a path through them at times similar to using a machete to cut a path in a jungle. It ain’t so bad right now.
Here are two sadistic videos of skeeters post – zapped. Watch em twitch.
This guy is some form of a centipede. They curl up in a ball when threatened or dead.
An update from a previous House Guest post:
Some readers suggested this guy was called an earwig.
Well, frankly, I don’t see the resemblance.
There are quite a few very small spiders here that seem to come in waves. Im sure it is a hatch of some form. I will clean and then within 4 hours there are a ton of tiny spider webs around.
Here is a picture of a spider that is normal size, much larger than the one I mentioned above.
The moths come in many shapes, sizes and colors. I like checking them out.
This guy has some serious antennae!!
Figuring it out… 1 swat of the zapper at a time (only for skeeters)
