What is kelkatu?
It's a bug, a very very annoying bug.
And the worse part is, i don't know what's kelkatu in English.
Firefly? Dragonfly? Moths?
Whatever it is, these annoying creatures likes to swarm sources of light.
Whenever there's a bright and warm source of light, there will be a lot of kelkatus.
Especially now during the rainy season.
Why is it annoying?
First, it comes in huge groups.
Second, it likes to gather around lights, and even laptops.
Third, the probability of you stepping/squishing on it is very high.
And most importantly, it has a really short life span.
Which means, there will be a lot of dead kelkatus all over the place.
Damn it, it's a bane. The wings are everywhere, and you'll eventually step onto its crunchy body.
Hyperactive tak bertempat
And what's more irritating is the fact that Molly gets hyperactive when these kelkatus are around.
You know, play play catch catch munch munch.
Now who the hell is going to clean up all the mess mess?
Jangan nak buat comel-comel di situ
The only way to prevent them is of course to turn off the lights. But then again, this is stupid.
Since i can't find a way to get rid of these kelkatus, the only thing i can do is to prevent its dead bodies from being scattered all over the place.
I took a big bowl of water and put it under the main source of light, and hoped for the kelkatus to fall inside.
Not that encouraging of course.
Is there any way to get rid of these things easily? Or better, is there any way to prevent them from coming at all?
And by the way, what's kelkatu in English anyway?
