BIG BLACK AND WHITE BUG
July 31, 2009
I wrote yesterday, but have not received a copy of my email, so thought it did not go through. This bug was about 2″ long. It was thick with dark black legs and feelers that were thick. Its back legs were tipped at the foot area with black and white like its body. I don’t remember if the other legs were. I didn’t see wings, but it disappeared quick suddenly when I brushed it into the leaves with the broom. I’ve never seen one before.
