While I'm at it, here's an information sheet for a blazing snitchbug.
(‘bl -zing ‘snich-b g)
Binomial Nomenclature: Scarpanica jettus
Size: 60 mm
Weight: 7 g
Attacks: Kidnaps pikmin, throws bomb rocks (if available), sprays fire
A variation of the snitchbug, the blazing snitchbug has adapted for itself a posterior spout that can spray its own internal fluids, which light to form a concentrated stream of fire. The ‘fuel' it uses is similar to that of the fiery blowhog, though any further connections between the two have yet to be explored. Using this fire effectively allows the blazing snitchbug to move much faster than its relatives. The blazing snitchbug is considerably smarter as well, as it will often drop bomb rocks next to pikmin it has thrown into the ground so as to destroy them while they can't possibly escape.
Strategies for killing a blazing snitchbug vary, depending on the availability of bomb rocks. The common way is to defeat them as any other snitchbug and throw pikmin on or swarm them while they're close to the ground, though one must move fast to pull this off. When the snitchbug sprays fire, it should be low enough to throw a yellow pikmin on it, granted it doesn't catch the pikmin on fire first.
If there are bomb rocks in the area, one can wait until the snitchbug is about to grab one and hit the one it has selected. The bomb rock may explode when the snitchbug is close to it or holding it and knock it to the ground. One can also wait until the snitchbug sprays fire, and then lure it toward a bomb rock. The fire will cause the bomb rock to go off and hurt the snitchbug before it can escape.
To cook a blazing snitchbug, remove the wings and coat them with the snitchbug's internal juices (it's best to hold the snitchbug above the wings and wring its body). Fry the wings until golden brown, then pluck the individual feelers and serve as spicy potato sticks.
