Family of potato bugs user banned
11th Apr '13

My son found a bunch of potato bugs and stuck them in the bathroom drawer. I did not know about said family of potato bugs until this evening when there were a whole bunch in the bathroom. So now every time I have to go pee or like just now- switch the laundry I'm afraid there is going to be a potato bug crawling on the floor. They have really thick bodies and make a crunch sound when squished and if you pick them up with tissue they feel like a rock- but they aren't a rock. Dude, it gives me the heeby jeebies bad.

Black bugs. They can be little baby ones or big and my son found a bunch of all sizes. Bleck. They kind of have like armor on their back- they are hard and if you touch them they roll into a tight little ball. I can't link a pic from my iPad but I can try to find a link....
