WHAT'S BUGGING YOU?
This lovely little critter is called a Japanese Beetle. It's very pretty. It has a lovely hint of jade green on it's back and head. However...
This is what it did to my beautiful crab apple tree. It devoured the leaves and left nothing but stubble.
Do you have any regional pests that drive you crazy? Japanese Beetles are new to us. In the South, we had aphids. They loved to eat our roses.
Speaking of creepy crawlies, last Saturday night it was raining and I had to take the dog out. When I stepped on the patio it was covered with worms. HUGE WORMS! They were crawling everywhere. I felt as if they were chasing me. Every time I moved away from one another came towards me. My daughter informed me they weren't worms they were night crawlers. It didn't matter to me...they made me itch all night long!
Do any bugs bug you? (Yes, I know this is really random.)
