Now it's the bugs

The rain was a passing thing - it's still coming, but Margie was right; it's not quite the rainy season yet.

Most of our unwelcome visitors were one-time things in those first couple days of downpours. Maybe we'll get more when the rain comes back, but for now it's bugs. Mostly little (well, okay, medium-big) winged ants, with some abejones thrown in. Abejones are beetle-type bugs. They don't bite or anything, but they sound & maneuver about like helicopters, and their feet are pinchy if you pick them up. You haven't lived until you've heard an overtired seven year old shriek when one of those things suddenly shows up on her arm.

I'm experiencing the attack of the pill bugs right now. I am sweeping them up by the dustpan full every day.
