Those Greedy Blood Sucking Bugs are Claiming Their Territory —- Wednesday, June 24, 2020

It’s been so dry our little (slue) pond

It is now dry.  That is a good thing and a bad thing

Good because the mosquitoes can live and breed there.

A bad thing because now the wildlife must travel

to the ditches to get a drink of water

But the other news from out on the farm —are the biting bugs.  They are many and they are thick.

Deerflies, biting flies, you name it.

Here is a horsefly for you….yes, they ARE that big, about the size of my thumb…

And the bites HURT!! 

I should have waited until it landed, but I actually didn’t want too.  🙂

Just say’n! 🙂

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,

Linda

  1. Ouch! We have something similar in Sweden. They liked to take a bite of us when we were Painting the house, standing on a ladder with a paint bucket. Are they bothering the horses?
