Last night, mum thought she felt a bit itchy on her neck/chest area. And when she looked down, you guessed it - a big weta bug like this was clinging to her shirt. I am sure you heard her screams in America and the Uk, they were loud. She pulled the shirt off her, and the big bug scuttled away.
After napalming the bedroom with insect spray, mum found it walking out about an hour later, and she was able to capture it and put it out in the garden.
I meanwhile, was out on the street sniffing rubbish bags and missed all the action.
