I can remember being a guest at a wedding when all the teenagers sat in a row on the floor and weaved about to some pop song on the disco. I did say "the" kids" not "us" kids ;-)

Vic old Buddy as LSM and I live in a small
country town I sympathize with your bug
problem but if you think about it, it's
their world more than it is ours.
Oh, lobsters are bugs of a sort and
they are coming live to-day from good
old Nova Scotia via my sweet little sister.

You wouldn't invite insects to live in your house and eat your clothes and food would you?
Insects aren't in the same family as lobsters, lobsters are related to spiders.

Lobsters, spiders and insects are all members of the phyllum arthropoda (creatures with joined legs). Spiders (arachnida) have 8 legs, insects (hexapoda) 6 and lobsters (crustacea) 10.

All different sub-phylla, hence more or less equally unrelated.

I just hope you get ahead of this problem. This year is not so bad for us but most years some sort of little bug gets the upper hand on all the others and the game is on. The first year it was carpenter ants, man thank God there is a simple fix for that one.
Good luck with it.

Well this is a two front war, on one it's the moths, on the other it's small black flying insects in the small bathroom/front door, once I get the caulk, I can win one with some caulk, the other? I called the park manager today, there was supposed to be someone coming over already to look at what could be done about the threshold under the front door, so far nothing. I'm surrounded, where's the artillery when ya need it?

On my canal boat there is the ever present problem of flying insects. This year I've been trying sticky traps. Thus far they have been quite effective as the inboard midge & mosquito population appears to be lower than previous years. The "best" catch to date is a couple of horse flies -thank goodness they succumbed to the traps before they decided I was feature in their next meal.....

Have you tried moth balls?


Or cedar? There are special cedar things that are made for closets.

Cute little buggers, I'm a bit of pain from a fall, I'll be ok, took 2 tylenol, skinned the right knee a bit(see thread #194 for a pic) and yes there is some swelling, I'm only going to get gas for the escort, the bank, a lender, the bank, Staters and then home today. Vons & the Home Depot can wait a day.

Did I say that it hurts a bit? Only when I laugh, humor off then. ;)
