I'm still trying to find info on those stick bugs, haven't given up, I work 10 hours a day construction so my free time is divided as much as possible

Word of caution...
"in the southeastern United States there are some species that have the ability to spray defensive venom when they think they are being threatened. These walking sticks can aim the spray into your pet's eyes and mouth. When this venom gets in the eyes of a cat or a dog, it is very painful and stops the animal from hurting the walking stick"...

I haven't had it happen to me... yet. They have been noted to cause temporary blindness and severe eye pain if they shoot you in the eyes [or your chams]. However, my chams close their eyes when they grab their food...

Either way, watch yourself!
