Terminate With Extreme Prejudice

EW-EW-EW is all I can say about these really icky and gross termites!  This is called a termite swarm and it is bad news.  These suckers came out of the hot water heater closet in search of mates. I had to call Dale's Dead Bug to come and spray. Now their shriveled corpses litter the walkway.

I was mowing the lawn once and rammed into an old stump that was just releasing swarming queens. Suddenly the air was full of them. After a minute or so I noticed a shadow moving fast across the ground - then another, and another. I looked up from my toil and saw that birds were descending upon the swarm, flying at eye level in a crisscross pattern around me. I decided to get the hell inside until the little nature drama had played out.

Yikes! You have the worst luck mowing--wasps, kittens, rainstorms. I didn't think termites were a problem in cold places though? I'm usually cool with any type of outside bug, but this was just creepy, not to mention destructive.

Eww!! That is DE-SGUSTING!!!!

By the way, isn't your husband's name Dale? (I seem to recall that?--maybe not.) Is your last name Gribble? *hee hee*

Thank you for blogging. . .
We learned tips for how to write on people's blogs, like a compliment.
We also learned that if you know something about the topic, you can put it on there if nobody else has written it. We liked the suggestion to only use one punctuation instead of a bunch if you liked it Vimax.
