I love Ensign Wasps. That little bobby-hatchety thing? That’s her ENTIRE ABDOMEN. She looks like she’s all legs because she FORGOT TO HAVE A BODY.

These wasps are also known as “cockroach egg parasitoid wasps,” and the fact that I found one in my shower… hmmm maybe not the best sign (or should I say… ensign?)

J/k it’s fine. Healthy ecosystems have cockroaches and oh boy is my house a healthy ecosystem! Don’t worry, Anya takes care of the naughty roaches for me. That last photo is my last straw of her getting in the way of my ensign wasp glamour shots before I relocated said wasp to the bathroom counter for a photo shoot. She is probably not happy about the prospects of her favorite toys disappearing.

Handmade insect earrings by RubySpotJewelry

Handmade insect earrings by RubySpotJewelry:

Aren’t you tired of waking up every morning, knowing that once again you have to go through another day without insect wings dangling off of your ears? Well guess what?!

One of my insect friends (you know, the one with the inside scoop on the horse graveyard [link]? And the botflies? Oh, I haven’t posted about the botflies have I? He got botflies on purpose. I took photos. That was how I met him) makes earrings from insect wings. He recently set up an etsy account, and has asked for tips on keyword optimization. Pffft. Nah. Let me put these on the tumblrs. I told him to take better pictures, but for now, this is what he has (and he has a LOT more than what he posted, he’s up to his neck in these earrings).

Top Left: Cockroach
Top Right: Dragonfly
Bottom Left: Dragonfly
Bottom Right: Grasshopper

Right now he is looking for feedback on making a better etsy shop and trying to get the word out that his shop exists at all. So, hello bugblr, my friend’s shop exists, look! Anything I should pass along to him to help him out?

A Love Letter to Cockroaches

Cockroaches, I love you. You are an essential part of the ecosystem, eating dead leaves and vegetation, and providing us with rich, fertile soil. You are fascinating and beautiful. I wish more people realized that only a few species are “pests” who have adapted to survive indoors with humans, and that most of you lovely creatures want nothing more than to scurry around outdoors and go about your lives. You are excellent mothers, carrying your eggs everywhere you go in a case called an “ootheca,” until your babies hatch. You are so wonderful. <3 <3 <3
