I went to clean the kitchen and found many many ants. As such, I removed everything from the counters of the kitchen and scrubbed them down. At least now they don’t have quite as much to feed on. I doubt they’re going away, however.

I also discovered last night that the June Bugs have arrived. I tried really really hard not to be freaked out by them, since there aren’t really any other bugs in the world that bother me, but I failed miserably and ended up running away like a girlie-girl. I hate June Bugs. And of course, up here they’re the biggest June Bugs I’ve ever seen. They’re completely harmless, I know… but they creep me right out. Even Wolf Spiders the size of my hand don’t freak me out the way June Bugs do. I’m I told the spiders bite.

    Fun with June bugs: get those big buckets of citronella candle, light them around five pm, let them burn. In the morning you will have June bugs in wax, a fine art piece if ever there was one. Also I believe that while they are attracted to the candle, they will be less attracted to buzz your head.
