    Bucking Fugs!!!



    I vote we work on a way to really take a bite out of the prosperity of these ^ little fuckers without putting too much of a dent in the rest of the food chain. Yeah, even if nobody ends up personally profiting from the endeavor & expense.

    Not as wild as I'd like. We have a couple of nesting pairs that survived last winter hanging out in one of our buildings - they should be back next winter and hopefully a kid or 4 will survive the summer and join them. (it's a big building)

    We have what we hope is a pair of and :eusa_pray: are male & female, skinks in the garden this summer.

    Lordy, I hate the little biting buggers. However, they do play an important part in the ecology of our planet.

    The Daily Apple: Apple #363: The Purpose of Mosquitoes

    But, the scientists caution, you don't really want to get rid of all mosquitoes from the planet because they might play a bigger role than we realize. So, okay, I ask, what role could that be?

    In addition to themselves being a food source, they pollinate. Nectar is their food (not blood), so when they stick their long skinny noses into the plants to get after the nectar, they also they happen to collect and distribute pollen.

    The don't pollinate a lot of plants, but some, including:

    Certain grasses

    Some species of Platanthera orchids

    Goldenrod

    By the way, if you have not been to the Northwest Territories, or Alaska, you haven't seen real mosquitoes.

    We have a nice little garden, so far the critters have left our veggies alone!


    And we have a new friend in our little Koi Pond, a baby snake! Love him!

    My mother taught us to never harm spiders, snakes, or anything else that ate insects. Especially in the garden.

    Smart woman!

    If a spider gets in the house, I just catch him and release him outside.

    Spiders are cool!
