By responsibilities, deadlines, one event and one application scheduled and due in three weeks….and by Brood X! These things are everywhere around here. In parks, in parking lots, in our backyard, front yard, front and back porch and they are flying around on top of that!
I fear for those who drive through a swarm of these things with their windows open or top down. Those motorcyclists; I shudder to think what they may have run into! And then there’s the noise. It doesn’t bother me too much but it does get loud. I’ve actually picked up a few to throw them off the steps so as not to squish them as I walk – yuck! On social media there are people posting how to cook and eat them.
How about no!!!!!!!
This photo was taken at one of our local parks we frequent. If there was some bush or tree to cling to, it was covered with them. Really really covered.
The birds have been pigging out on them as well. Thankfully there is light at the end of the tunnel as I’ve read that they should be winding down and out by the end of this month. Then we will have to deal with all of those little dead bug bodies to dispose of. I guess they might be good for the soil? Are you currently dealing with Brood X?
