Camper Bug Report

In my youth [long ago] I was forced to attend church camps and retreats. I don't go camping anymore. I object to picnics. In a special report, The New Yorker makes clear the wisdom of my preferences by calling attention to some of the horrors which await. For example:
THE GIANT SANDWICH SPIDER, hatched deep within the tiny air pockets in soft white bread...

Sneakers or hiking boots left under your bunk will quickly attract the RED-EYED HYENA SPIDER...

Lured by the sound of human snoring, the nocturnal DIVING FURRY FUZZ MOTH buzzes in through cabin windows and heads straight for the nearest oral cavity...
And that's not all. Go to the article [with illustrations].

    Thanks Jim for your spider update. I am glad my children don't read
    your blog. This could set SDB Camping back a few years.
    Next time you are here I'll give you a tour of Camp Harley.
    I'm gong to try to read the article to see if there are insects SDI's they would recommend.

    (I all ready sent this to you thought I would transfer now I know how to work comments thanks for your help)
