I honestly can't remember if I sent this to you before or not but if not, can you identify the bug with the feathery antennae? It was in my kitchen floor earlier this year and I am stumped.
The other bug was in the living room tonight. And that's a funny story: first of all, it's huge. The body itself was over two inches long. It was startling to see that something so big got in without anyone noticing. I took a ceiling duster to try to brush it down, and it took off flying. It was so loud it sounded like a small airplane. Like any proud CFZ person, I took off as well -- running and screaming in the opposite direction. We could not locate the bug after that, and finally had to give up our search to prepare for dinner guests.
Some time later I wandered into the dining room and happened to rest my hand on the back of a chair -- right on top of the bug. I am ashamed to say I went running and screaming again, but only for a second. Eventually, I trapped the bug in a cup and took it outside. Anyway, I can't identify it either but it looks familiar.
JON: The second bug is a shield bug or stink bug of some kind, but I haven't a clue what the first one is. Over to you guys....
