Mother nature never ceases to amaze us and yet there is simply so much that remains a mystery out there in the world. While most animals have been studied extensively, many bugs and insects have yet to be comprehensively observed in the wild. One such insect is the rare and elusive Mountain Katydid Scientifically known as ‘Acripeza reticulata’.

Found predominantly in the southeastern corridors of Australia, Mountain Katydids, which are also known as Mountain Grasshoppers, are one insect that you wouldn’t mind coming face to face with in the wild. They are incredibly easy to miss, and are even harder to spot when you’re specifically looking for one, because of their natural built in camouflage.

The exterior part of their bodies is a dull brown or black color and this, combined with the grainy texture, makes them resemble what looks like a piece of bark or a dead leaf on the ground.

However, we all know that looks can be deceiving and the Mountain Katydids of Australia are not as inconspicuous as they initially appear to be. As you can see in the accompanying video, when they are touched even in the slightest manner they transform into bright, colorful little bugs that you don’t want to mess with.

The sudden change is caused by their wing casings parting to show off the funky colored lines of bold red, black, and bright blue dotted bands underneath. It’s an impressive sight and in the wild bright, flashy, electric colors often signify to predators that the creature they plan on hunting and eating is potentially toxic, poisonous, and/or nasty tasting.

As for Katydids, they aren’t poisonous, but they are absolutely revolting and taste terrible since they’re chock full of noxious chemicals.¬†The fact that the insects flash their colors after being touched is definitely unique to them because such displays are always done in advance of any possible attack as a warning threat to others to stay away!

Scientists have studied their behavior and yet still remain puzzled as to why the bugs only display once they’ve been touched, which in the wild would mean something tried to eat them! Seems like too little too late but perhaps there’s more to it that humans just can’t understand. Either way, be sure to check out the video and see how cool the Mountain Katydid truly looks!

Have you ever seen one these bugs?!

The Easiest Way To Get Rid Of Mosquitoes. This Simple Trick Will Save You This Year!

For people (and animals!) who live in areas where they are active, mosquitoes can become almost unbearable. But only the female mosquitoes bite – they are what are called ectoparasites, which means they are parasites that live on the outside of their host. They use their exposed, elongated mouth part, called a proboscis, to suck the blood from a host like a syringe.

The loss of blood is minuscule and has little effect on the host, but the saliva of the mosquito irritates the skin and can leave the bitten area itching for days. Worse yet, mosquitoes act as vectors for disease, meaning they pick up the disease from one host and carry it to the next. The most common and dangerous mosquito-borne illnesses include malaria, yellow fever and west nile virus.

Mosquitoes go through various stages in their life cycle: egg, larva, pupa and adult. It takes approximately 40 days for the insect to go from egg to adult. Once they reach the adult stage, the males live about 5-7 days, while the females can live for 1-2 weeks.

During their adult life, the females seek a host in order to get that sweet, tasty blood. Once they have achieved their goal, it takes them a day or two for digestion and growth of eggs, which they lay in stagnant water. They then seek another host and repeat.

Now that you know more than you ever wanted to know about mosquitoes, watch the video to find out how to trap them in order to avoid the negative impact their day to day lives have on ours! How well did the trap work for you? Any hints or modifications that you found were especially helpful? Tell us in the comments.

If You Mix These 4 Natural Ingredients To Make THIS You Will Get Rid Of All Mosquitoes For Good!

There is so much that is wonderful about spring and summer…just the sheer freedom of being outdoors, unencumbered by heavy clothing, swimming, barbecuing, picnics…I could go on and on. ¬†Not only do we create new happy summer memories, but so many of the highlights of our lives come back to us when we think about summers past.

I myself, love gardening and sunshine, but my husband loves sitting outside on a summer night under the stars. ¬†Sounds good, right? ¬†Unfortunately for both of us, I am one of those people whom mosquitoes are attracted to, and they completely leave him alone. ¬†I’ve tried citronella candles, and ultimately submit to lathering myself in chemicals that repel them, but doing that seriously BUGS ME! ¬†I don’t like putting chemicals on my skin, so it kind of takes the joy out of the peaceful summer night under the stars.

When I came upon this really easy DIY for an all-natural mason jar bug repellant, I was intrigued because it contained all the scents I love, and claimed that for some reason this combination is abhorrent to mosquitoes. ¬†Since I had all the ingredients in my house already: MASON JARS, LEMONS, LIMES, WATER, FRESH ROSEMARY, LAVENDER ESSENTIAL OIL and TEA CANDLES…I figured it was worth giving it a try. ¬†I made three of them and sat outside in the evening several times this week and it worked!!!

Watch the video below, for exact instructions on how to make these. ¬†Not only do they look lovely, but the scent they give off is pure freshness, and the bugs detest the smell! ¬†This works great for any summertime outdoor activity where you are “Bugged by Bugs”, and it is a great natural way to make outdoor living a pleasure.

Strange Animal Seen Creeping Around Woman’s Backyard and The Species Has Finally Been Determined

If you spotted this strange, mutant looking creature in your backyard would you scream and run away or take a picture of it? The woman who found the creepy, snake-like, two-headed thingy had both of those reactions and she even called her friends over to take a look at it. Naturally she wanted to know what the heck it was she was dealing with because you don’t see something like this everyday..

Lujan Eroles filmed the odd little creature in her Santa Fe, Argentina driveway and when she was still unsure as to what exactly it was, she posted it social media. According to Lujan, she and her friends ‚Äúall thought it was a mutant animal, which is why we filmed it and put it online for people to give us their opinions.‚ÄĚ The post has since gone viral and the answer as to what the creature is has been narrowed down to two possible answers, neither of which include any mutants!

The main explanation that people seem to agree on is that it’s either one of two caterpillars which are native to where Lujan lives in Argentina. The first one is what’s known scientifically as Eumorpha labruscae which is also more commonly called a gaudy sphinx. When in the larval stage the caterpillars look like mini-snake heads, as you can see in the picture, and after they pupate they transform into moths as adults.

The second possibility is that the caterpillar is a different type of moth, Deilephila elpenor, aka an elephant hawk-moth. These moths also display a snake-like appearance as a means to ward off predators, mainly birds, and to keep from being eaten. The color patterns and placement resemble serpent scales, while the black patches give it eyes on both ends. The creepy look is all part of the little caterpillar’s first line of defense and without it they’d be plucked up by a hungry bird!

Regardless of whatever species caterpillar this snake-worm insect creature belongs to, it’s ugly and creepy up close and it’s not anything I’d want crawling on me. Make sure you check it out and weigh in with your opinion as to what type of caterpillar you think it is!

He Had A Strange Pain In His Ear And Thought It Was A Bad Earache. But They Pull Out This Unexpected Surprise!

We have all heard that ear wax can build up and become impacted in the ear canal, causing eventual pain and even hearing loss. ¬†What you are about to watch in the following video, that was causing this boy’s distress, is far worse than ear wax. What came crawling out of his ear is¬†just beyond belief!

Fourteen-year-old, Grant Botti, woke up in excruciating pain coming from his ear.  In a state of panic, after feeling something moving, he reached inside his ear to see if he was just imagining the movement.  Incredibly, what he pulled out was so disgusting and startling, that I feel the need to forewarn you.

He grabbed onto the tail of a 4-inch centipede that had become lodged in his ear!!!  It is hard to believe that he was able to pull it out by himself, without passing out from shock or pain. He was able to slowly remove the entire creature!  Even more unbelievable is that his mom watched him pull this grotesque thing from his ear, without passing out herself.

She had the presence of mind to bag this centipede and bring it to the hospital, where her poor son was rushed, in unbearable pain.  At Saline Memorial Hospital, Grant was examined by the doctors, who found abrasions in his ear drum that was causing the continued pain.

It is believed that the centipede entered his ear canal while he was swimming. Thankfully, Grant did not sustain any permanent physical damage.  Hopefully, he and his family have gotten over the psychological trauma of this disturbing and painful event.
