Big Bugger


I have no idea what this "bug" is called, but we have way too many of them around our house and garage right now. It seems to have something to do with the time of year, September-October. If any "bug scientists" know what this is officially called, I would love to hear from you. For now, we just call it the "Dinosaur Bug."

Note: OH, thanks to a wonderful commenter named "Lee" this bug has been identified an "Assassin Bug" If you look at Lee's Comment you will see the html link to a "bug site" ha ha Thanks, Lee.

It's a weevil, a real bug. We have them, too. They get in the house sometimes and stink like all get-out if you squish them. I think they are called chinch bugs, but not 100% sure.
