hexapod haiku contest!

NCSU’s Insect Museum Blog is having a Hexapod Haiku Contest! Your haiku should be submitted by 11:59pm, 20 March 2008 (the first day of spring!).

This one I particularly liked, as we are inundated with Asian Lady Beetles right now:

Dapper red and black
What brings you into my house?
Go! Aphids await

Enter, why don’t ‘cha? :D

  1. I hope you guys have a lot of fun with the competition!

    riverside snack bar—
    a ladybug’s two circuits
    round the railing post

  2. hi, out of topic…. but i was wondering if you could pinpoint that classic quote about bugs having bug parasites of their own… something about a fly having its own little fleas or lice i think?
