Fucking insects

2012 is a banner year for insects in RI and in fact all down the east coast.

When we visited North Carolina this past May, we set out early in the morning on our last day there. When the interior lights on the car came on a swarm of insects decided then it was time to get in the car too. One of them hitched a ride with us all the way to Maryland.

But even at home I’m noticing insects we’ve never seen before. A lot of it probably has to do with the lack of winter last year. Seriously, we never really got a deep freeze and precipitation was almost nil. Hopefully we’ll get more winters like that.

But the bugs – we have moths and crickets. The moths of course are attracted to light. Crickets don’t like light.

We’ve cedar bagged and done all that to keep the moths out of the teas and clothing. But they still want to occupy the house.

I suppose we’ll just have to get used to the fact that they’ve moved in.
