Anything with a mouth can bite!
There is much participation as a member of a gardening group on Facebook. People post their prized produce and flower photos. Questions are asked and seasoned dirt lubbers are more than happy to answer, based on their experiences.
A woman found a Praying Mantis pod on a tree she pulled inside for the winter and set outside again. She was curious, asking members what in the world it could be. Should she take it off...could the mother still be in the basement...would the pod damage the tree? Soon she had more answers than she could handle, adding to her gardening knowledge base and was put at ease about their beneficial presence.
Until someone said they will bite. Well of course they will, just as a dog or cat will if threatened. In the many years of gardening, never have I been nipped by these amazing creatures that inhabit our flower and garden beds.
Perhaps because it is widely known that anything with a mouth can - will bite and am ever so respectful regarding boundaries.
Our mouths are designed for eating, talking, laughing, kissing. For some people when things go wrong, they tend to lash out verbally at others, yelling, expelling harsh words. That can destroy even long-standing relationships in an instant.
A little restraint goes a long way between parties. Nature's insects act instinctively with a quiet, controlled confidence, there is much to learn from their ways. Happy sales all, proceed forward and no biting allowed!
