Looking for information on self-contained ecosystems, I came upon this:
And consider this: since everything is underground, there is no need to build a 6-foot fence to keep the deer out, no need to be concerned with a “bug lights” to get rid of misquotes and other flying insects, or no need to devise a plan to get rid of the grasshoppers that eat everything.

The Eggcorn Forum’s own spell-checker suggests “misquotes” for misquetos. I’m posting it only because I’ve developed a taste for self-referential word twitches, among other neurological disorders caught by becoming a forum member.
