Whoa! I think for now I am happy just calling him an inch worm...

Thanks, Suunto!

Swampthing,
Should we be calling you 'Junior Bug Whisperer'? I am so impressed!

"Mosquito bait" or "slapping swearing itching scratching" would probably be more accurate!

Be careful what you say? The powers-that-be up and changed Sage's title because of a casual statement! ~smile~

I'd be rolling on the floor LMAO if you end up with the title "Slapping, Swearing, Itching, Scratching Mosquito Bait" You'd have the longest title here!

By "this group", I think suunto meant Geometridae, not WG!

Oh geeze, there it is... Slapping, Swearing, Itching, Scratching Mosquito Bait!

Seriously, I wouldn't mind it so much if they were native mosquitoes. The Asian Tiger mosquitoes are murder this year, even with this dry summer we've had.
