    Thats totally cool!

    It reminds me of years ago My partner and I found a gecko type lizzard crawled under the contacts right when it engaged,,,

    He was squished,, and preventing full voltage, hence the call, neat part was he was glowing with blue and green lightning when energised.

    I wish I had a camera back then,, you guys would have liked it. It is still so vivid to me.

    Mantis

    Got from run connection on contactor to metal of control box. Unit was running fine. Ants are the worst around here for burning up contacts.

    rats

    This camera will keep me from being accused of lying but I didn't have it last december when I found a rat in a Tempstar slant top. Crawled in the low volt hole and got zapped on the contactor. Still worked though, the call was for someting in the attic.
    Be good to your fellow man, not nice. There is a difference.

    Talking

    That's a good one. I have seen a bunch of those Asian beatles take out a contactor B4, and have found a bunch of cockroaches causing a T-87 mercury bubble go back and forth.

    It just must have been your day to get shocked though, what's the chances
