Assassin Bugged


What’s with the Eastern blood sucking cone noses?  There appears to be a lot of them around here and some end up in the house, especially in late summer and fall.  They hang out on the sunny porch and the dog barks at them but then he barks at most insects and has a habit of being stung.  Has someone been dropping them off? 

If I find one of these in my bed there is going to be a scene!  I found one on the door frame of the room next to the bedroom last night and promptly flung him or her out the second floor window.  It seems they are attracted to field mice nests and we have plenty of mice around.
