Look at this thing! This is what I have swarming in my back yard right now. And you know what is the best part? That is where the swingset, garden, and shade tree are. They are called cicada killers. These things are mongo huge. Like 3 inches in length. Last year when they showed up, I went to the library and tried to research it. Ended up at the VIP extension office and they told me how to kill them. 7 dust. Cicada Killers pack a mighty, wallop of a sting too. They definitely don't mix with kids.
I have duly notified the dear husband. He will declare war on them this pm. The only thing is, I have to mow the grass. I ride the riding mower and Andy does the trimming with the push mower. Since we were gone last week, we have grass that has gone to seed. Pray that I don't get carried away by one of these little monsters. They seem to have quite a bit of personality, on the aggressive side. If you don't hear from me, you'll know that I have fled to the far north to escape the little, excuse me, huge infestation!
