There’s a bug on my computer!


I had an urge to fold a ‘bug’ after the various bug incidents at the office recently. This particular model is at least 13 years old, I found it at Joseph Wu’s excellent origami diagram repository. Kudos to Marc Vigo Anglada for creating such an amazing piece. It’s pretty life-like and relatively easy to fold. I folded it in about 2 hours but most of the time was in figuring out the diagram since it has a few ‘bugs’ (or I could have interpreted it the wrong way). Once this is done I tried another one and did it in about 30 mins. The hardest part is in folding the legs initially, which can be quite tedious. This model is folded from a single piece of A4 sized photocopy paper.

Here are some snapshots of the ‘bug’:

The underbelly of the bug.

The proof of its life-likeness was when I showed it to my wife and she glared at me. I think she liked the Kawasaki rose better :)

  1. chanced upon your blog through my quest for a good looking Kawasaki rose picture! I have folded it a couple of times and none of my photographas do justice! you got beautiful ones there!! so thought I’d drop a line!

    1. Fleas can be a real problem. The first thing you need to do is have your pet tretaed. This can be done by using a flea shampoo/dip, but we have found it is very effective to use Frontline or Advantage flea medication. Check with your vet for the proper use of these products. The next step is to vacuum all of the floors inside your house. This is to include hard surfaces (vinyl/tile/wood) and carpet areas. After vacuuming, empty/dispose of the bag/canister. If you don’t, any fleas that you picked up will re-infest your house. The vacuum produces vibrations that wake up the fleas from their sleep. (The fleas are in the pupa stage like a butterfly) Nest step is to treat the floors, pet bedding, and fabric furniture with a flea treatment. Make sure the product used is labeled for fleas and follow the directions on the label. After the treatment, it is necessary to vacuum the floors every day for at least one week. For the treatment, it is advisable to hire a professional. A professional will ensure that the proper products are used and that the treatment will be a success. The Bug Man warranties all interior fleas services for 6 months. If the fleas return, we will too, at no additional cost.For more information on flea, visit or Thank you for your question.
