Really glad we didn’t call the kids over to look at it when we discovered what it was since they both tend to grab things.  Yikes!  It even pooped out a little sack of orange-red warning scent.  Very interesting.

    I am glad I didn’t touch it. I am glad it didn’t touch me. I came within a few inches to grab that photo. Hey! It flies. Slowly, but it does. I don’t need a 3-month piercing bite. Goofiest looking bug I’ve seen in a long time. long long long time. That sucker (literally) was more than 2 inches long. As my friend told me, “glad it isn’t the size of a lion”.

    Uuggh!  I learned about the Assassin Bug the hard way.  Driving back from Omaha, middle of the night. I stopped for gas in one of the many little Kansas towns along the route and saw the bug near my car.  I drove away and suddenly felt this horrible pinch on my neck, opened the car door and swatted the bug off, not knowing what it was.  Then the fun started.  For the next 3 hours my neck burned and itched horribly and there was a terrible stench in car.  I was all alone and my neck felt like acid was burning the flesh off.  Dh had no sympathy for me when I got home and told me what the insect was.  And that is how I learned about the Assassin Bug.  Be very thankful that you didn’t touch it.
