"CRITTERS"Please know you are in the country in the woods, surrounded by farm land using organic fertilizer, and that we have all sorts of crawling and flying "Critters" living here . These include hornets, carpenter bees, ticks, chiggers, fireflies, dragon flies, lady bugs, centipedes , moths, ants, wood roaches, stink bugs, beetles, spiders, crickets, grass hoppers, cicadas, moths, butterflies, Japanese beetles and more. They are vital to our wonderful, healthy and fragile ecosystem. Larger wildlife-birds, heron, vultures, bats, turkeys. ground hogs, mice, owls, turtles, frogs, snakes. lizards, birds, coons, beaver, skunk, fox, eagles, hawks, possum, deer, 20 + variety of song birds...are all dependent on "Critters" in one way or the other. For this reason, we decided against spraying the entire property with Temprid Insecticide to irradiate them. Our strategy is to try to keep them out of the living areas by minimally spraying around the house, pole building and barn to create a barrier. We've managed to do that with some success. This last winter was great but with summer approaching we know the "Critters" will be back and some already are. The scientists say insects will be the last to survive and based on experience, we believe it!
The time of year will determine which critter you get to see and/or deal with. They are most active in warn summer months. Right now, early spring, we are dealing with flies as the adjacent fields are sprayed with fertilizer- ie cow and pig manure. Spring rains were light this year, not much standing water, but still expect mosquitoes. The carpenter bees are here too for a couple of weeks and flying under the eaves. Ants have arrived as well.
