Do grasshoppers bite?

Should we be worried about grasshoppers? Imagine yourself taking a nice walk through your garden, admiring the lawn you worked so hard to keep green and trimmed. You stumble upon a grasshopper. You consider letting it jump on you, when you give it a second thought: are grasshoppers dangerous? Do grasshoppers bite? That’s exactly what this article is about, but first let’s talk a little about grasshoppers themselves. ABOUT GRASSHOPPERS Grasshoppers are a part of the insect order Orthoptera, along with crickets and cockroaches. Although often dubbed herbivores (i.e. they eat plants), some grasshoppers can actually eat fungi such as mushrooms, and even dead animals! However, most do prefer eating plants, and especially clovers and cotton. Grasshoppers are found all over the world, except the Antarctic as it is too cold for them to survive there. They prefer warmer climates and are usually not seen in winter. As the name suggests, these insects tend to live in grassy areas such as fields a

Just sharing some more quotes

Here it goes, 1. If you are depressed you are living in the past. If you are anxious you are living in the future. If you are at peace you are living in the present. 2. Listen to eveyone and learn from everyone bcos nobody knows everything but everyone knows something. 3. Most of the problems in life are bcos of 2 reasons 1. We act without thinking or 2. We keep thinking without acting. 4. If eveyone is happy with you, then surely you have made many compromises in your life. If you are happy with everyone, surely you have ignored many faults of others. 5. Life is never easy. We have to make it easy sometimes by ignoring something and sometimes by accepting something.

Can your pet ward off evil spirits?

Has your dog ever barked at something that wasnt there? Has your cat ever hissed while staring at an empty space? There’s some bad news if the answer is yes: your home could be haunted by evil spirits. But do not fear! The good news is your pet is busy warding them off. According to a new survey of more than 2,000 pet owners in the UK, conducted by animal charity Blue Cross, more than 30% of people believe their pets protect them from ghosts and spirits. Many pet owners reported that their dogs or cats alert them to a supernatural presence by barking, growling or staring at nothing, or by backing away from something that cannot be seen. Some respondents said their pet also displays flared neck fur when a spirit is nearby. Among dog owners, around 25% said they have seen their four-legged friend bark or stare at nothing at least three times during the past month. Around 25% of cat owners said they saw their feline hissing or growling at an empty space twice over the past 4 weeks, while
