I remember living in Wisconsin and getting ants one year. After that I made sure to not leave anything on the counters that could potentially attract them and never had a problem again. Flash forward to me living here in the south. I kid you not I think that I live on an ant hill. It doesn't matter how clean my counters are they come. Usually it is after a dry spell and then we get a bunch of rain but sometimes it is just because. Because of what I don't know. Today I have killed 2 (yes I said killed) and haven't seen anymore but that doesn't mean I won't be infested this afternoon. Darn rain.
Mosquitos have been especially bad this year for us too. I am not sure why but each and every time that my girls are outside they come in with no less than 5 bites and they get BIG! Poor kids. The other day I came in with 3 myself. Poor mama.
Finally we have spiders. Lots and lots of spiders. Do you know how icky it is to walk outside smack into a web? Wondering if you have the spider actually on you or if it was already off the web for the day. Then wondering if it was a black widow or just a regular spider because you know we have black widows in our yard too.
Do you have bugs? Am I alone this year or is the whole country suddenly under attack by insects?
