There lies a true business opportunity! Rent-A-Chicken Organic Pest Control Services!

with a big air blaster to knock them out of the tree. i was thinking liquid nitrogen sprayer at first, but i think that would damage the tree.

i remember when Alex was going on about burning them from his trees. AWLT

Yikes. Haven’t seen any this year but they came through a a few years ago and literally ate all the grass in the yard. That was before we had 35 chickens though :clap
We have red ants. Dont forget how much they like a fat wiggly larva.

Do they trigger on cooling weather? It seems they are north and far south so I am confused as usual. Of course watching the path of a flying moth gives me some idea of why it might just be random.
If I had to guess I would say dry weather. I seem to remember them showing up around the first good dry spell in August and this is the first week for months that we haven’t had rain.
