Have a pesky Anthropod launching these little pods-of-sweet-love? Well, pick up the pods around you and place them in your inventory. No more unexpected surprises....or if you a sadist: throw one far and get ready for some target practice!
Official Entry: "The pod has a hard and extremely tough skin, this peels back in the presence of human beings. A creature popularly referred to as a "Brainsucker" then emerges fully formed and active. Our conclusion is that these pods are a genetically engineered device designed to attack only human life forms."
