Thank you! I made sure not to touch it! I've got a friend at the CDC and knew how dangerous they can be!

This is a female, when you kill one be careful not to touch any of the body fluids in case in is infected with Trypanosoma cruzi, the protozoa that causes Chagas' Disease. See: http://bugeric.blogspot.mx/2014/01/ki...
