  3. Pest Pro - didn't know what termite dung was called, so I got 1 wrong. :)

  4. There's a fine line between interesting and disgusting. The fact that really got me was that, in the right conditions, bed bugs can live for a year without food. Yikes.

  7. Amusing? Well, yes and no. Roaches can live for up to a week with no head. It is a bit amusing to think of my lifelong enemy the roach searching for food in my house but unable to eat it, but not amusing that they are so danged hard to kill!

  8. I am officially a bug boss, but someone needs to convince the bugs that like to sneak in my house of that!

  9. I apparently listen way too closely to my kids when they talk about bugs, I actually scored as a Pest Pro. I am a little alarmed as I hate bugs and thought I would not know too much.

  10. I am sure that my kids would find it amusing- I on the other hand find it very disturbing and feel as if I need to fumigate the house just in case. And even then it might not do any good according to those tidbits of facts.

  12. I'm not sure if this is amusing but it sure is gross!! cockroaches can live for up to a week without a head because they don't breath through their mouth but through little holes in their body segments....YUCK!!!!
