We have these bugs down here in S. Florida. I see them all the time. Luckily I've never woken up with one of these sucking on my face. They carry a nasty disease called Chagas. A clearer picture of how assassin bugs evolved....Interesting little creatures they are. Here is some info on Chagas...Chagas disease

Bugs like that remind me just why I like it outside when it is minus thirty.

Yikes!!! -30 degrees. That's waaaaaay below my threshold. I get cold when it gets 70 down here. I know, I know, I'm a sissy. Luckily we have about a total of 20 or 30 days of that FRIGID weather in the 70's or below
I love the heat and humidity. The draw back is you gotta share your space with giant spiders, snakes, fire ants, and face sucking bugs.

Here's a couple of my spider friends hanging out in my garage



I saw a spider like those two dragging a lizard carcass across the walkway one day. Gone by the time I got my camera.

We have a song in Australia titled, "There was a redback on the toilet seat when I was there last night."

In outside loos, I always check under the seat before plonking down. Very dangerous little critters!
