I found this creature on my cascade this AM. I don't think it was having breakfast, but how did this thing fly all the way here from Thailand?

it flapped its wings really hard creating uplift... it continued this motion for along time before landing safely on your Cascade plant.

Asian carp? Is this what you have eating your hops?


It's not going to be eating your hops, but watch out it will eat the shingles off your roof in one day.

Just kidding. But, I would watch it, insects do eat plants!

We have em in Kentucky lake/Lake barkley now. They jump right out the water. I know a guy who got a big welt on the side of his face. I'm gona try to bow shoot em soon.
Keep an eye on the bug. To see if he makes a meal out of your cascade.

We've shot a ton of them below the Barkley dam. I had one come out of the water and hit me in the shine last summer. Almost took me off my feet.

Oh you got me. So which one of the two species of jumping carp is actually the asian one. Bighead or silver?

Also these fly in the boat when you are elctrofishing.
