New Mexico: Insect Life
This morning, I was startled to see a medium-large roach on the kitchen floor, on its back, apparently dead.
After gazing upon its inert body for awhile, feeling relieved that it was dead, I got around to wondering how it got onto its back and how it became dead.
Which made me wonder if there was an even larger insect in my apartment that killed this fairly-large roach. This is unsettling.
Spring is here in New Mexico. I'm not sure what all to expect in the way of insects. For example, when will the tarantulas come out?
The little red ants are back in business on my front walk.
