Well - that put me off my breakfast !
Hmmmm... I wonder if they are crunchy when deep-fried....
Looks like they come crunchy right out of the box and they are obviously high in fiber.

About 30 or 35 years ago I decided to drag out the old fiddle and mess with it as I periodically did over a 55 year lull. I was shocked to see bow hair all over the inside of the case, (I had had the bow re-haired approx. two years prior) then I bought a "Glasser" student bow for $25.00 rather than having the bow re-haired again.
Then I found out about leaving the bow enclosed in darkness and started leaving my 6 bows out in the light, (the carpet mites hate light).
I now (for the past two years) leave them laying all in a row directly on the carpeted floor and have had no problems with the pesky little bugs.
wow- I thought I saw an unusual bug this morning, and took a second look to see if it was one of these creatures- turns out I found an entire nest of ants- that were hatching- but for sure this post was motivation for me, and informative- thanks. I would post a picture, but most are in the throws of death at this point. THANKS !
I swear- someday I will be playing as well as my imagination
That bug really is kinda cute... if it only didn't munch on natural fibers, lol. Since as an avid knitter, I have a stash of yarn that is all wool, silk or alpaca, I'm always on the lookout for things wanting to nibble on stuff like that. Cute as it is, it can go live somewhere else, lol.

Eeek! @coolpinkone I have been lucky so far, but I've only been knitting about 4 years, so my stash is all fairly new. I think my time will come, and I dread it. The bugs better stay away from my sweaters!

They are quite crispy and crunchy when flash-fried... give 'em 10 seconds, no more....with your oil just at smoking temperature....
Gross!!! LOL some people eat while cruising around on the forum!!! (closest thing to food I could find)
CoolpinKone and Damfino, I wonder if you put some cedar or lavender sachet in with the yarn and finished projects if it would deter the bug, supposedly works with moths.

oh yes.. my yarn is in ziplock bags. For sure.
What sometimes comes under attack is my finished garmets.
I have never had an issue with anything hanging. (I have been knitting a LONG time) I have a closet full of shawls, scarves, socks and sweaters. I had an issue about 10 years ago.. and nothing since.
So I will be tearing apart my closet and inspecting and putting some cedar blocks.
The little bugs that eat the wool... look more like larvae, not so much like Denny's bow bugs.
Again.. I haven't seen one in 9 years... I am unsure if this particular scarf had fallen or been left somewhere.. but you bet I will be inspecting soon.
