We have company. Bad company. They are back. And we cannot WAIT until they are gone. Talk about unwelcome guests. And they are as big and bad as ever. Who? The black flies. It was like overnight. We went from hanging out on our deck, to being sequestered except for walks. And it’s a good thing our walks are super early. Black flies like to sleep in. My human tried to do some yard work on Saturday, and she had to get her bug suit out. They can also bite us dogs- and they really seemed to go for the FG’s ears. Along with ticks, they are right up there with those things I would like to see become extinct. Seriously. I know it’s not nice to be so mean, but both insects have no redeeming qualities in my mind. Thankfully, unlike ticks, the miniature flying piranhas will only be around for a few weeks. In the meantime, we pray for wind. STRONG winds to blow them into tomorrow.
We just need some researcher to figure out how to get the two insects to annihilate one another. Now wouldn’t that be perfect…Anybody know a good entomologist?
