I found something worse than flies

Well, I didn't think it was possible but there is something worse than flies . . . mosquitoes!!! The little bloodsuckers are vicious. We picked up a few more layers today and sadly we lost 2 and the rooster thanks to the 100+ degree temperature :( Now we have 17 layers and 3 soon to be layers. But I digress, the mosquitoes attacked us all and then followed us to the house. They were hell-bent on taking a bite of my baby girl and I was not about to let that happen. The children and I mounted an offensive position and proceeded to seek out and destroy any and all mosquito intruders. I am pleased to say that the baby has escaped without a single bite. But to make sure there is not a next time we will begin working on areas with standing water tomorrow. The war has begun!

Buy on

Oh, I hate mosquitoes! And chiggers. We have a lot of chiggers. So far, not too many mosquitoes.
