Perfect music to wake me up on a Saturday. Good morning!
  6:23am morphe':

Years ago, I captured a female cockroach with her egg sticking out of her rear ... I kept it in a jar to see how many wee ones came out ... I think I remember it being over 20 ??
  6:24am Ben from Toledo:

Morning all. This song is nice!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:36am listener monica:

GREAT to turn on to this. (i rescued 3 houseflies yesterday and set them free outside to find some sh*t or a carcass.)
  6:37am ron-ji:

Hooray! Another Micah guest episode, on the rare morning I am (still) awake to hear it.
  6:40am ron-ji:

Now THIS sounds straight outta Music of Mind Control. Crossover hit?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:41am Doug in JC:

Good morning. I like to give my house spiders a little spritz of water every now and then

  6:44am Toothgrinder Tom:

All right, I’m in on the ground floor! (Almost.)
  6:45am Toothgrinder Tom:

I’m a lifelong friend of spiders.
  6:48am morphe':

Last year we had a spider living with us in a wood knot hole in a table side..
Simon of 10 named her Mabel... When I find spiders in my NYC hovel, I move them to various corners ... have not had a cockroach in years - though surrounded by others with frightening #s..

Moving on to bedbugs .. everyone on my floor has had them except me. When the expert with the Beagle came, there was no action. He said with all the dust and cobwebs around the floor molding, they would never come in and so it has been so...
  6:50am Cooh John:

Good morning manimals. These songs are bugging me, Micah. Hi Ben. Spent some time in Toledo. Carty still around?
Avatar 😼 Swag For Life Member 6:50am micah:

nice story morphe!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:51am fred:

I love spiders. I had some at home a few years ago, but a cockroach came in (poisoned, first I ever saw) and the spiders ate it and all died. I threw it out the window when I saw in their web, but too late
  7:00am Listener Abroad:

I’ve got a golden orb spider that makes a web daily at night and high enough to be able to walk under and catch insects.

  7:13am morphe':

There was cheesy "Afternoon Movie" (NYC WABC 1970s) in which the protagonist is stuck in a small boat/skip on the ocean with no oars???? but he has a guitar and is singing ".. I'd rather be a cockroach than a flea ...If I could ..." (El Condor Pass tune)Anybody know the film? I think Krys O would know but she is not in here.
yet...
Avatar 😼 Swag For Life Member 7:14am micah:

well morphe ive seen alot of tv movies but that ones got me stumped
  7:15am Toothgrinder Tom:

morphe’ I think I remember that … was the final scene of the skiff washing ashore only to reveal his skeleton still clutching that dang guitar?!
Avatar 😼 Swag For Life Member 7:17am dale:

one called satan's triangle that has three people in a boat adrift.

google 'little man in the boat' and all kinds of nasty pops up.
  7:17am Rob from Maryland:

Good morning! My wife and I just tuned in, and we're loving that all these songs are about insects!
Avatar 😼 Swag For Life Member 7:18am micah:

Morning, Micah and all. What's the buzz?

I recently read Insectopedia, by Hugh Raffles. Highly recommended. An anthropological accounting of human-insect relations. With a look at cricket fighting.

I live in RI where the "state's most dangerous animal" is the black widow spider but nobody I know has ever seen one.

I wouldn’t mind having a tarantula as a pet.
  8:15am Payton in Warwick:

Is that Will O?
Avatar 😼 Swag For Life Member 8:15am Will the Sound Guy:

Hi Handy, Fred, melinda, HyperDose, TDK60, TT, Will J, Jim, and dale
Avatar 😼 Swag For Life Member 8:43am Handy Haversack:

My best insect story is all about the ladybugs. Before I moved back to NYC from grad school in MI, I wanted K8 and some friends there to come see my mom's family's old farm in the far west of the state. It's April, so my aunt and I go up to reconnect the pipes and light a fire in the stove to warm the place up. And we woke up a ladybug colony hidden the walls for hours and hours, thousand upon thousand of ladybugs came pouring out of all the cracks in the walls of this tarpaper shack, basically. I think a million ladybugs might have been there, sleeping away until the fire woke them up and the poured out.

It was the cutest biblical curse you ever saw.

Morning, Will!
