As much as bugs may make your skin crawl, the fact of the matter is, most creepy crawlers are harmless. As the professionals at Vulcan Termite and Pest Control in Alabama advise, “Any bug can be a nuisance, especially if they are invading your home, but most insects actually don’t cause much harm.” But there are always some exceptions. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, there’s a short list of 20 invasive insect species you should be on the lookout for, and one of them is starting to make a comeback. In fact, one state even has a campaign to “stomp it out.” Read on to find out what bug you should be wary of and why the USDA is giving you permission to kill it.http://www.bestlifeonline.com/
Recently, experts have warned of a certain creepy crawler that’s been spotted that could infect you with a potentially deadly disease. Local officials have asked people who see this dangerous bug to call and alert their health departments immediately.
Native to Madagascar, the Trachelophorus giraffa gets its name from its jointed extended neck, which is similar to that of a giraffe. The majority of the body is black with distinctive red patterns covering the wings. The extended neck assists with nest-building and fighting. The giraffe weevil is the longest weevil in the world at around 2.5 cm.
Not much is known about the giraffe weevil, as it was only recently discovered, in 2008.
