With you there, Sylvia. Anything that can't seem to fly straight - Daddies, Cockchafers, Stag beetles etc - gets me running for cover.No problem with bats, birds or dragonflies.
I' m with you both on Daddies etc., but the worst is moths. I just get settled in bed with a book and one will come flittering round the light. I turn the light off quick as trying to catch them is a mammoth task and I hate killing them. Funny the only thing I don't mind killing are slugs and snails.
never fear ladies, they have just emerged as adults, and will be mating and laying eggs in lawns which will cause all sorts of headaches for all sorts of folks.
oh yeah they give me the eebie geebie too.. you can here htem in the dark tapping against the ceiling when trying to sleep..
I fear the worst is a buzzing mosquito just as you turn the light off.The daddy long legs I cant say like them so that's why I am shutting the windows now autumn here.
