what. is. this.
I know I have no business playing with dirt if I can't handle the appearance of some bugs.
But I hate bugs. I hate crawling or flying or buzzing bugs.
So....while I try to maintain calm....what the hell is this!?!!
Caterpillar? What kind of caterpillar looks like this!?!
I thought I saw some kind of worm head peek out of one of my blueberry flowers last night -- but upon taking a light to it, I couldn't find it anywhere. Naturally, today, I've been obsessing over that plant envisioning the blueberry maggot or any other creepy crawler that would ruin my otherwise awesome plant.
Next to that container is this little bowl of succulents. And I almost missed it but peripherally caught something moving.
And then I saw this crawler. Blech.
Closeup, when I caught it trying to burrow into the gritty mix and tossed some bark (with IT on the bark) into a plastic container:
What is this?
And what is it eating?
Is it killing what it's eating?
How did it get to the second floor?
And how do I make it go away forever?
