This is an almost unimaginably wonderful organism. With its jet black body and shimmering wings, it is quite a sight to behold. As I studied this creature, it slowly turned its head to regard me with such awareness and intelligence that one felt as though in the presence of a superior being.
PLEASE NOTE: FOR THOSE WHO ARE ASKING FOR INFORMATION ON HOW TO KILL THESE AND OTHER INSECTS, I DO NOT OFFER THAT KIND OF ADVICE IN MY INSECT PHOTO GALLERIES. THESE GALLERIES EXIST FOR THOSE PEOPLE WHO ARE INTERESTED IN INSECTS AND THEIR BEHAVIOUR, OR WHO WANT TO LEARN HOW TO IDENTIFY THE VARIOUS SPECIES. THESE GALLERIES DO NOT EXIST AS A RESOURCE FOR EXTERMINATOR COMPANIES. I REALIZE THAT EXTERMINATORS AND CHAT FORUMS ARE LINKING TO THESE IMAGES, BUT I ADVISE VISITORS TO POST THEIR DISCUSSIONS ABOUT EXTERMINATION ON THOSE FORUMS. SUCH COMMENTS HAVE NO PLACE ON MY GALLERIES. IN FACT, BECAUSE THE COMMENTS HAVE BECOME INCREASINGLY IDIOTIC
, I'VE DECIDED TO DISABLE COMMENTS TO ALL BUT PAID-UP MEMBERS OF PBASE.
