Its that time of year again.

Finnigan was playing and a ball I threw went into the bushes and he went after it .... came out snapping and licking.... yep he got tagged and now sports a bump on his nose. So the annual short fight against those useless critters is on again and I hung half a dozen baits in the trees around the property. The air and bushes should be clear by tomorrow .

They're nasty that's for sure.

The skunks usually dig put a nest or 2 in the bank in front of the house.

Here they have their nests almost exclusively underground

I got stung right above my right eye in the woodshed.

I saw him.coming at me..he was like.little bomber..I swear h was flying at me with his sting pointing right at me.and a smile on his face like in a cartoon.

I hope your dogs ok

Keep onions in your pocket... grin grin


I wonder if tap dancers walk into a room, look at the floor, and think, I'd tap that. I wonder about things.....

Yellow jackets catch lots of houseflies early in the year. We consider them beneficials..unless their nest is in the wrong place.

Cost vs benefit. Their cost out weights the benefits to me.

This is about the time of year I go on jihad against all wasps, scorpions, and fire ants.

Half a teaspoon per can.... a little bit more works as well but you don't want them to keel over before they gat back to the nest.

I am sure that just after you run a bush hog over a yellow jacket nest, all you will think of is all those houseflies ya did not have to swat that spring.

Thanks, I didn't have any around when I butchered chickens last week but probably should put out some bait and hope to get them before their #grow and become a problem.
