Is Cricket Poop White??

Crickets (and ladybugs) are the only bugs that don't make me run for the hills. Ladybugs are just too darn cute, and Chester showed me a fond love for crickets that I will never forget. :)

Last night at work there was a little cricket lost in the kitchen. I scooped him up in my hand and gently set him outside.

After I set him down I noticed a bunch of white lumpy stuff on my finger. Now, I've held crickets SEVERAL times before. I like to rescue them from the prison that is a grocery store and set them free on their way out in the wide open skies.

DID I scare the POOP out of him?? OR did I squish him??

You are too cute and sweet. But, either way, for me, that's gross.:) You must be right, though.

Yucky. I am not a big fan of crickets b/c I used to have a basement bedroom at my parents and they would always end up in there... like mutant 1" ones. Ick. Hopefully the white stuff doesn't give you a rash. :)

LOL!!! Can't help you there girl! BTW...crickets and ladybugs, oh and rollie-pollies are the ONLY bugs I will hold. My 2nd graders always think I am so "cool" because I usually have to rescue a cricket out of my classroom every year. There all like..."Cool! My teacher picked up a bug!"
