Cause the gas stations always fill the bucket but NEVER empty it. At least they did 45 years ago when I pumped gas in school.

When animal matter decomposes, one of the by products is ammonia gas. Ammonia is a well known and very efficient glass cleaner.

I never smelled 300 Japanese beetles, dead or otherwise. Nor have I ever smelled 4 dead rats. How does one gain experience like that?

I smelled both but to tell you the truth I never really counted the Japanese beetles, not sure how many were there and when I had my face in there smelling them, I think I saw a few still moving

Hey, about 3 years ago my son and I went on a road trip of 25 days out to the PRC (Peoples Republic of Calif) and all points in between. On the way back we swung through Texas and they had some sort of cricket infestation. The windshield water buckets at the gas stations were overflowing with cricket carcasses and the smell was enough to make a maggot chum on its shoes.

Was the cricket infestation in Lubbock, TX by any chance?
