Leaf Footed Bug

Dear Rob,
We are sorry to learn that your friend has a morbid fear that she might have bunnies in her house.  Let her know that she doesn’t need to fear this Leaf Footed Bug in the genus
Leptoglossus, though they sometimes enter homes to hibernate as cool weather approaches.

    Funny one guys, I think she means the friend is worried about the bug attacking the bunnies rather than her being scared that bunnies are hiding out waiting to reek havoc. 🙂

      Hi Trevor,
      Our editorial staff is not totally convinced. There is probably a study underway somewhere, that is trying to determine the negative ramifications of watching television during moments of childhood turmoil. Syndromes triggered by that turmoil might create irrational adult fears about animals that resemble animal characters. We are especially concerned about this syndrome when insects and arachnids are concerned. It is one of our goals to dispel the morbid and irrational fear of insects, which is why we attempted to devillify the poor Leaf Footed Bug that is merely trying to expand its typical range as our weather changes.
