They Bite?

But they do bite, or pinch, right? I used to try to knock them off the extended awning and side of the AS and a couple "got" me so I won't touch them without a damp paper towel anymore. Besides they drop and roll away when you try to catch them. The damp towel traps them better, like a magnet, until I toss them out, usually with a good retaliatory projectory flick of my finger!
