You guessed it, I have not been watching that closely so when I take my vitamins or medication, I sometimes get a strange flavor in there. Hope they are nutritious.
Actually, one of our stray dogs must have lived on them at one point because she will often seek them out for a quick snack. They are known for their bitter taste and smell. Maybe that explains why she does not like dog treats. LOL
Also, watch your toothbrush. They don't mix with toothpaste either!
I was watching two this morning and they were nose to nose. I wondered what they were doing and became pretty sure that one of them said something similar to "get the heck out of here" since one suddenly backed up and made a quick retreat about 6-8", then continued to walk away at a brisk pace. About as quick as I have seen them move without flying.
It has been a while since I tried to remove them with a vacuum so when I read on a website entitled the ladybug lady to use some soft material in a new bag, I gave it a try. I remember why I did not do it now. Even though it was a hand vacuum, I tore them apart. :-(
We remove them from our greenhouse windows by scraping a dustpan along the glass. They drop when it gets close to them and they accumulate in the base. Yes, a few will take flight and we have to catch them again, but they survive to be released outside.
