In life we come across many types of pests that infest our environment. They come in all shapes and sizes, colours of the rainbow, smelly, dirty, bright, dark, ugly and in some cases beautiful pieces of art that one wonders how in heavens name can such a beautiful creature become a pest.

On the other side of the coin we have what I call the invisible pests, the ones are constantly hanging around like a bad smell, feeding on and off the carcasses of dead animals like the carrion that they are. Yes they could be buzzards, hyenas, vultures, jackals perhaps and who knows they may even come in human form.
Yesterday I had a strange encounter of the latter, the human pest who is also a known key board warrior, who is nothing but a worm, known for being a miserable little bastard to say the least. Fit only for crocodile meat. I had this strange mobile text full of bravado, threatening me if I did not stop exposing him to the world for the little pest that he is. Well I have news for him and his “Louie the fly” mates. I will not use mortein to eradicate this pest from the environment but use subtle means of extermination. They do say that you can skin a cat in more ways than one, but how does one skin a pest that has the brain power of a worm.
Well I thought I had better write an article about pests in our environment and given them new scientific names that best describe their character. If readers can provider better descriptions, I am more than happy to oblige. Mind you I must keep to using Greek to describe them on a scientific basis and keeping in line with normal and expected paradigms. There are 13 new species that have been catalogued according to their status and longevity within the confines of the Pest society.
Well there we have it. A whole new field of bugs with the exception of the rat who is synonymous with a variety of pests found today in our environment. For me it has been fun in being able to draw similarities with today’s world and that of a make believe one. As I stated earlier, there is more than one way to skin a cat. This is but one of them. I am sure readers have better things to do than read the article above.
Disclaimer. Any similarities to live bugs, grubs, pests, animals or humans is purely coincidental. No bug, grub or animal was harmed during the making of the article and humane Photoshop techniques were utilised under observation by inspectors. Please contact the author if identification of the bugs in real life can be confirmed. Only qualified academics may apply.
As always, apologies to purists for my poor grammar and savagery of the English language. I wish you all well and hope that this article does not cause ambiguity in the minds of those who read it.
