Today's six-legged creature was spotted crawling across the exterior of the MH. The exterminator working nearby had a sign on his truck proclaiming his station in life was "Entomologist," so I asked him for an ID on creature. He said it is referred to here in the valley as "brown bandit." Good enough for me. I think she very strongly resembles what we call a "box-elder bug" in the Midwest, substituting red for the yellow, of course.
