I opened the vegetable drawer in my fridge yesterday and found this fellow feebly waving his legs, going nowhere fast. I think he traveled home with me in a bag full of freshly harvested kale and broccoli leaves. My first reaction was to slam shut the drawer, despite his slow moving efforts.
Have I mentioned that I do not have any warm, fuzzy sentiments for bugs whatsoever?!
With some fear and trepidation lest he be a quick recovering, flying big brown bug — yes, I am fully aware of our difference in size, thank you — I grabbed my phone camera and snapped this pic. THEN I slammed shut the drawer.
Can you tell me, is he a good bug or a bad bug? If the former, I will put on a couple of pairs of gloves and attempt a capture and release like I do with spiders (but only because they eat nasty bugs). Otherwise, he’s there till he dies at which time I will put on a couple of pairs of gloves and attempt a capture and flush.
