Cone Nosed Beetle

Found this blood sucker here in the dungeon tonight. Glad I found it before it found me after I went to sleep! And here I'd read where they mostly hung out in adobe buildings. I guess not!

  1. Please tell me you stomped on it instead of shoo-ing it outside.

  2. Believe me MC, it is a goner!!! On another note I'm back to square one on the inverter. Besides all the other weird problems it was causing the charge only lasted 12 hours. I had to go out and recharge just now. 11:00 PM. I'll try to return the Chinese crap, but doubt that they will take it back. It may be in the car so I can use the laptop in it. :(

  3. tffnguy, If you feel like it, try that 700 watt inverter I have behind the back seat ( trunk )

    Im curious to see if that one will be any better.

  4. More than likely just more wattage and less charge life, but I may try it when I get the chance. I tried the 1000 watt Dennis sent me a while back and it didn't seem to pull much more than the one I'm using now, but did pull enough more not to use it. It has a remote switch where I could rig it up to be shut off in here though. Any other time that would be good, but not now that I need to be running the evap about full time.
