    With the kitchen and bathrooms work being done I decided to make some sense of the work/storage room
    Moving stuff around, throwing useless junk out and trying to get a grip on a messed up area
    Got rid of a particle board shelf/cabinet. I’m doing so have to relocate an electrical outlet
    When I got the old GFI from the box this is what a saw

    A bunch of hatched lizard eggs
    This is them on a plastic lid

    I put them in the garden as free calcium

    You never know what you’ll fine here at Casa Goofy

    Your bug population should be pretty low.

    I don't even know what kind of critters hatched out from there, but I would rather have them, than tiny, annoying flying insects right now.

    Im guessing the eggs are from Wood Soldiers. Quite often I’ll see baby Wood Soldiers in the room

    Aren’t bats warm blooded? Live birth not eggs

    you know how in school there would be kids who knew all about reproduction and told you everything they knew, and then you slowly realized they had no clue? Yeah, well they all post here now.

    Hardly. There are some Boas here but a Boa’s egg is a lot larger than approximately 7/16”.

    Robot Bat Snakes from Mars is a great band name

    Probably. This particular outlet was fixed to the side of a shelf/cabinet that needed to be gone. I realize the pic really didn’t show it

    BTW, is there even a small chance that you have roaches, mice, ants, termites, etc in your walls?
    We love lizards. They eat all kinds of insects and spiders. We probably have 20 or do that spend most of their lives inside. There’s probably 3x that that live both inside/inside

    If you had gotten there earlier, you could've made some mini omelets!

    Oh, you might be living in one of those late '70s poisonous snake thrillers. Be careful. This could be the sequel to Venom.
