Can pea weevils be introduced by purchased seed

I had my first experience with pea weevils this year. When I reported it to the seed company they said that they had to have originated in my garden. Since the other two types of peas I planted (from a different source) showed no sign of weevils, I wonder if this is true. Could the eggs have been on the outside of the pea seeds or is the problem originating in my garden?

biting bug drew blood and exuded an anti-coagulent

My husband was recently bitten by a bug which resembled a black grain of rice. It embedded itself in his arm and he began to bleed. I dug the thing out with my fingernail and the wound continued to bleed well after a normal cut would have. He said it didn't hurt and didn't notice when it happened until someone noticed blood on his forearm. We were outside at the time but we are truly baffled. We live in southern Wisconsin. Any ideas?

Mud Dauber?

From reading a few of the posted questions and answers I believe I have a Mud Dauber nest here. It just fell from my deck umbrella. The spiders inside are so brilliant in varied color that I just had to share. Richmond, Virginia, mid- August.
