Daddy Longlegs Dad Chat

9th September 2016

Daddy Longlegs Dad Chat - from Ian Watkins 

After using the story about the pending Daddy Longlegs invasion this autumn on the Topical One it set me thinking about what my dad used to say to me as a kid, ‘Don’t worry son, they don’t have mouths!’. It was his way of making sure I didn’t get too scared of the strange insects that sometimes got into my bedroom when I was growing up and bounced around the walls in a menacing way. It turns out, after doing a bit of research*, they do actually have mouths but they are too small and their jaws are too weak to bite humans. Another myth about them is that they are the most poisonous creatures in the world unable to unleash their power because they have tiny mouths. Apparently they have no venom whatsoever. Even if they could bite they couldn’t kill you. So if you come face to face with a swarm of giant crane fly over the next few weeks don’t worry they’re totally harmless.
