Nice shot, Gary.
We used to call them the same in South Africa. Besides being a nuisance by getting in the way all the time, I used to feel neutral towards them. Until one night while we were asleep, one of them crawled into my wife's ear. I had to grab it with tweezers to pull it out. And the more I pulled, the more it tried to crawl deeper. I won the tug-of-war, and since then I've had an aversion to these guys.
Living in Canada now, I'm happy to say I don't miss them at all!
