Oh yeah, we are having a REAL problem with ants around here too. Fortunately not in the house yet, but surely a matter of time. Connie has been making up sugar water and borax and putting out "traps" that seems to be working well. They have been getting into the garage, but between Connie's traps and some Sevin dust, we are fighting them back. I don't believe they are fire ants, but they can still sting pretty good if you aren't careful.

We first noticed them during the drought period in Connie's garden plots. She had been watering them, and I guess they were attracted to the moisture. All you needed to do was to touch the pepper plants and they would come boiling out of the soil around the base of the plants.

Yeah, this 2020 sure isn't much of a fun year. And the forecast seems to be for things to just get worse. I was reading last night that the coronavirus has mutated to be much more infectious in the mutated version. Great....

I have some very tiny ants in my house. I think they are called ghost ants.

We got another 1.05" of rain today starting around 5:30pm.

Lots of high winds associated with the storm, and some branches got knocked out of trees. While this was happening, I was thinking, "the way this year is going, I wonder which building a tree is going to fall across?"

0.12" of rain today. Looks like 80 percent chance of rain nearly every day for the next two weeks.
