Wordless Wednesday: Big Bugs

So, my brother mentioned he had in infestation of sprickets last year. He lives in Eastern Virginia. I had no clue what he was talking about even though he tried describing it. We came home a couple of weeks ago to see the weirdest looking bug. It had the legs of a spider and the body shape of a grasshopper/cricket. And it was BIG! Like daddy long leg big, but with a mutant body. I know this pic isn’t good, but it gives you an idea of what it is! And yes, it hops! Oh, and can you see the long antennae on it?

Then Fred was over the other week and found the largest praying mantis! It was climbing on his tire.

Eeek!! I hate bugs. I don't mind Praying Mantis' though. I was always told that they were good luck.

I hate those spider cricket things. I hate spiders and ones that go jumping are more than I can take.
