as they gather around some lamps
or some light posts anywhere in the countryside.
They look most active at night
penetrating houses and other establishments
and in the following day,
they gather themselves in heaps
which cause headaches to everyone.
Black bugs are a huge problem especially for farmers
who have to endure for weeks at a time.
Harvests are cut by a considerable percentage
every time these bugs attack by the thousands.
The easy way to get rid of the zillions
is to throw them in the garbage and left to die.
A huge swarm in one day
doesn't necessarily survive the following day
especially when exposed to the heat of the sun.
In some instances,
people tried to burn them in heaps
but the bigger problem was
the burnt smell was far more foul-smelling
that's why it's highly discouraged.
No one can possibly figure out
the origins of these bugs
and how they got to one place
at any given time of the year.
Conspiracy theory has been around for years
that these bugs were scattered
by chemical companies themselves
in dams and irrigation systems around the country
like they do with other pests
so that farmers will be perpetually forced
to buy pesticides and other chemicals
ensuring the profitability of their businesses.
And there's still one lingering theory
that's not going to die down anytime soon or ever:
that these insects are sent by God
as a sign of His interference with human affairs
where He disapproves of our ways,
and also as a stern warning for everyone
to stop sinning or doing wrong.
