Are they back?

This morning I went outside to bring in the laundry. The weather was overcast and cool. I was quickly removing the laundry from the lines and nearly grabbed hold of a locust, thinking it was a clothespin! Last year Libya was invaded by locusts and I had thought that they were all gone, but here was a lone locust on my clothesline. It was stunned from the cold and barely moving.

I brought it inside to show Jenna and she took a break from studying for her exams to play with it. After a bit it warmed up and was jumping and flying all over the house with Jenna jumping and flying right after it!

Poor little thing! Locusts are big time pests and it will have to go. Now I'll be on the lookout to see if they are back. Posted by Picasa


  1. ICK! BUGS! It's just something you get used to (like the big roaches in Texas) They don't bother me much anymore. We are very slow at work today, being the end of the year, so I've been reading your blog.
    I feel like I live in the dessert as we have not had much rain this year. We have had lots of fires this last week here in Arlington, TX

  2. Salaam;

    I don't know that I would call it "little"! But it is beautiful, in its own way, subhana'Allah.

    Am glad, however, that I don't have to deal with them!
