The Log Cabin Building Insect

7/12/2010 04:06:00 PM ·

If you thought insects were the only pests that created problems in the home, think again. This unknown insect species is a master builder, creating itself a virtual log cabin mansion, and all with the strength of his back.

Some kind of adhesive was used by the weird insect that keeps these logs glued firmly together. The logs themselves are not really of woody material but some kind of calcium carbonate secreted by the weird insect. Wherever the weird insect goes, the whole ‘log house’ goes with it.
