I Heart Insects!

Insects, arachnids and other so-called “creepy-crawlies” are so frickin’ amazing! I wish people wouldn’t squish them (on purpose) or use harmful pesticides to kill them (thus also impacting ecosystems, in general.). I’m going to end up like Hermione from Harry Potter, I know it, with an insect version of S.P.E.W. *laugh*

This is cool, but I’m also such a softie for the little guys that I hope that there’s no permanent damage to this little guys with the installation of their little backpacks. If so, don’t tell me! *wry laugh* I’d rather believe that they’ll go to the happy roach farm when they retire from their life-saving gig.
