We have BUGS!
Sometimes I try to catch them.
Sometimes I try to eat them.
We have bugs of all sorts: crickets, grasshoppers, beetles, ants, and spiders.
- We have:
FLIES—flies I try to kill! I chase them, I pounce on them, I swat them—there are all sorts of flies: house flies, horse flies, deer flies, biting flies, blowflies, fat flies, skinny flies we got them.
They all buzz, bite, and get in your ears! ALL OF THEM!
You know what? They don’t get in my ears! Nope, but they do get in the equine’s ears and in the dogs’ ears. I don’t know why they don’t bother cats, but they don’t.
- Mosquitoes—monsters, each and every one of them!
- Gnats—Mom and Dad think these are the most obnoxious, annoying, creatures. They can even chase Mom and Dad on their four-wheelers. (Right along with the giant Horse Flies)
- Giant Horse Flies and slender little horse flies. These winged monsters eat anything walking around with warm blood in it. And they will chase you down to get the blood.
- Wasps—Mom is very allergic to these and Honey bees. Their harpoons have been known to knock Mom down and out. Until the Benadryl kicks in and she can get her get-up and go going again.
Well, I think we covered all our wildlife,
what a farm is,
how to live and
work on a farm…
I think the next and last thing I’m going to talk to you about is the life-blood of the farm.
So, see you soon!
You definitely have a wide variety of bugs on the farm, TLC Cai-Cai. We don’t have quite that many around our house, and I don’t want any more!
I’ll bet you have so fun one to chase!!! TLC Cai-Cai
Bugs. Yuck. Mom likes winter when they all go away. Mom says they go back to H@ll where they belong.
Love and licks,
YES!!! TWO PAWS UP!!! TLC Cai-Cai
Charlee: “Yay bugs! Moths and crane flies are our favorites!”
Chaplin: “The bitey stingy kind, not so much …”

Crane Flies…I want to try! TLC Cai-Cai
I chase spiders, roaches, stink bugs & ants. Meow. They are fun to chase on the floor. Meow. I’ve never seen a mosquito but, my mommy fusses about them. Meow. I also play with lady bugs, too. Meow. Mommy says no, though. Meow.
Oh, no!. I’m sorry to hear you are allergic to bees/wasps. I learned at a young age on my grandmother’s farm that bees hurt but, I am not allergic. Wet tobacco really helps to take pit the sting. I remember my grandmother telling me not to be mad at the bee. Once it stings, it goes off to die. There was a lot of clover on the farm and I stepped on many.
I’m so sorry, Momma.
Take OUT the sting. *sigh*
It is what it is…I always hate that they die. 😦
Bugs are the best toys…unless they bite you. Love, Archie
Yes…like that spider did to me a while back. TLC Cai-Cai
You sure do have lots of bugs! We have loads of paper wasps this year …
They are scary but very interesting.
