This Triatoma gerstackeri, the Kissing Bug, was sitting on the wall just inside the Courtyard gate when I arrived at LBJ WC.  It is my first for this year.  I read that the local ones don't stay on people after they bite (tracking their feces into the wound), but outdoor animals may become ill from sharing their sleeping quarters.
