Thrips. Harvest bugs. Thunder bugs. Whatever you want to call them, they’re small insects that come out during the warm weather, and mainly around fields. I’ve read in the past that because of their small size they’re prone to getting between the layers of LCD monitors and dying – and they’re not easily removable either (it involves taking your monitor very much apart).

Thankfully, I no longer live anywhere remotely rural so their blight no longer gives me problems. Indeed, I haven’t seen one for years.

Until today.

Crawling between the layers of my monitor.

Just that one, no more, and in my damn monitor. What are the chances?
