    Re: They’re back! Love Bugs!

    It's a bad time right now for bugs everywhere. Yesterday, here in Ohio, we had massive swarms of big dragonflies that are migrating. The swarms were so big that the NWS radar was picking them up as returns and the radar map looked like there were storm clouds moving across the state despite it being a perfectly clear day.

    It could be worse though. The mayflies are so bad around Lake Erie in late June/early July that they bring in bulldozers to clean up the mess they leave when they die.

    That is crazy!

    At least dragonflies serve a purpose preying on gnats and such.

    In PA we’re struggling with spotted lantern flies. They’re not a harm to cars but to our trees. We’re asked to kill as many as we can every day.

    Dragonflies are a pain to pick out of radiators. Gotta use tweezers.
    Treat it like it's the only one in the world.

    Yeah, I totally get that.

    I didn't mean to imply they weren't a nuisance in that regard.

    It’s really thick - so thick it does not spray easily. You might experiment with pouring some into a bowl and then dip the foam applicator into the bowel.

    Just saw my first stink bugs of the season today.

    These things are disgusting. Never smash one or it will release its "stink". Ranks right up there with skunk.

    Gee, glad we don’t have them around here that I’m aware of. Imagine the stink if a bunch of them collided with a car !
