Ugly Giant Grasshopper

This is an example of the ugly bugs that get dragged into my house. I stumble onto them in a bug box or make shift one... near my computer, on the kitchen counter or my bedside table. Lovely! This one isn't even full grown. This year when they all came out of their nests... a cloud of baby grasshoppers... I had the kids out there stomping on them. And I am NOT one for killing defenseless creatures but these things are born enmass and they grown to be giants and eat all the foliage off the plants around the house. And they are so much less messy to kill when they are tiny. Please don't think badly of me. =)
