Not Legal

The only real prob we have with bugs here is moths coming in through the front door. Our porch light is right by the door, and they get sucked into the house when the door opens.

No, it is not legal to keep game fish here. I don't even bother trying. The fish I have now are amusing enough to me and at some point and time in their lives, will reach a decent size. But yea, any soft bodied bugs I can find... I feed to the fish. It seems to pump them up!

We had a freak week of 70+ degree weather last week (after our first frost, and then some). My husband had to resurrect his epi-pen and the lady bugs, box elder beetles, etc, all of a sudden came out in droves. I don't think we're going to top freezing today, and while I haven't been looking forward to cold weather, I sure won't miss the flies, bees, ants, lady bugs and box elders that came out last week!

I've told this story before but for you all I'll tell it again.......went Christmas tree hunting in the woods......found The Tree........brought it home and inside............several hours later the thing was alive and moving......literally moving......upon closer inspection........mizillions of stinkbugs who had lain dormant due to the cold under the bark had come swarming out from the warmth of the room.......yeeha......it's summertime.......the tree got deornamented and out of the back porch to be washed and sprayed.............my skin still crawls at the memory......
