For the past 40 years, Rae Letsinger has been a buzz with collecting bugs. His office has all different types of bugs. There is a long fancy name for what he does.
"I'm a Leperadopterous, it's kind of hard to pronounce. I actually the like to be called a bug collector cause I collect everything," states Letsinger.
Collecting bugs started when he was helping his niece with a school project. He doesn't have to go far to get his collectibles. He sets up a black light in the backyard and they come to him.
"That draws the insects in. They land on the sheet and I take a jar with some poison then collect them off the sheet."
Once he catches them, he has to dry them so they'll preserve.
"Once they have dried about 6 or 4 days, you put them in a drawer they'll stay that way. I'v had them for 40 years just as good as they were when I caught them."
His rarest find was a Spinx Moth he found in Barry County.
"It was identified as on of the rarest months in the U.S."
But he is not a fan of all bugs.
"Chiggers maybe the only one. Ticks, I can pick them off. Chiggers they make ya itch to much."
And he always cringes when one lands on his windshield while driving.
"Oh yeah, I always wonder what they are when they splat and hit my windshield that might be a good one. Not much I can do," states Letsinger.
