Bugs

Days and days of rain followed by 70°+ temperatures means the bugs are coming out in force. I live on the river and the number of bugs in the yard has literally exploded over the past 48 hours. The temperatures at night are too warm to kill off many of the new pests and it's going to get worse before it gets better.

There are, of course, ways to deal with the bugs including Permethrin, DEET, bug netting, and citronella.

With the bugs come the spiders. Last year was a good year for the spiders and this looks the same. There wasn't a week in the woods last summer where I didn't end up with at least one thick web across my face. Spiders...heh...love 'em.

Thanks for reading,

Nada. Downtown for an Anniversary Weekend with little time to hike (other than up and down Michigan Avenue.)
