Last year the biggest insect problem we had was red wasps. This season..
After getting attacked twice when I mowed our dog yard; I started reading about them.
Not only have we been finding huge hills in our pasture and yard, but armies
covering our house... - at times invading our counters as well.
We've been buying everything we can get our hands on to try and get
rid of them! The little red ones and the carpenter ants.
Can't wear sandals anymore or if you stand in one spot for a moment
you'll regret it. It's that bad.
When I mowed my walking paths in the back pasture I came across
the little town being built in the photo above.
Looks like little skyscrapers.
This is what most of them look like in our yard.
Step in that and stand for two seconds... and you're in big trouble.
This is the biggest one I've found so far.
It covers the entire span between an H post.
Not sure what kind of ants these are.
It's scary to mow because on the rider even when you hit one
sometimes ants go flying out the side of the mower and if the wind is right and
anything blows back on you; it's katybarthedoor.
If any of you knows of anything that seriously kills them let me know.
If we could buy a herd of ant eaters we would.
Least when I walked out back to take the photos I found another new
Jay feather for my collection. Isn't it beautiful?
Time to rustle up some supper.
