With the first real rain of the season. it is now time for BUGS TO DROP OUT OF MY CEILING! What are they? (pix inside)
I tried "What's That Bug" and a google image search, but what are these bugs
I live in the East Bay of Northern California. Last year, at about this time (during our first really rainy spell) I found 15 or so of these little bastards crawling on my ceiling. Several of them were joined at the end, and crawled across the ceiling in some sort of unholy congress or insect cha-cha-cha -- until I smooshed them. I think they somehow come out of my skylights, since they tend to congregate there.
Well, it's raining again, and they're baaaa-aaaaaack.
The ones I photographed are strange in that I found them in the bathtub -- far away from any skylight, but underneath an extraction fan.
They look like earwigs but lack the pincers on their tushes.
I would normally live and let live but last year they dropped on my bed which precipitated a holy war between myself and these... things.
They only show up during the rainy season. Are they termites? Mutant ants?
