Now what I HATE are the flying tree cockroaches that emerge in the summer. If I see one of those suckers flying across the living room I run the other way!! And promptly have my dad kill it.

We have these Junebug things that are gnarly.
I was up at work in Fort Mac and had one go down the back of my shirt. Well, the boys got a show because I was jumping around in just my bra to get the bloody thing off! LOL

Funny how widespread critters can be, we have junebugs and cicadas as well, but I've not seen many of either yet this year.

We've had really bad grasshoppers though.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

We don't get those here. And if we did, I would probably move. They look like they latch on like grasshoppers do and I hate that clingy feeling. LOL

That's what was on me!! I remember the nasty antennas, cause that's how I felt it! LOL
I've also jumped out of my rock truck and stood on the outside standing because those things (and once a moth) were landing in my cab.
I wonder where I got june bug from... LOL
