i think fungus gnats are a minor thing in comparison.Sheesh!
Well, I'm not gonna believe that we have turned any corners just yet!
SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Scientists have discovered the first nest of so-called murder hornets in the United States and plan to wipe it out Saturday to protect native honeybees, officials in...apnews.com
Typical of 2020, a fungus gnat showed up here in the South Window right in front of my face as I was reading this article!
not new at all here as i can find them by the billions out and about and i've had many thousands of them living in my worm buckets (but i now have a good control for them by letting some small spiders live in the buckets too). when walking in the woods during the winter sometimes you can find the fungus gnats on the snow like someone has sprinkled black pepper grinds around.Fungus gnats , is this something new or just the actual name of our local gnats.
They just found the hive in Washington state. One news broadcast and Americans are "seeing" them everywhere. They are taking to killing any bee they see just in case.i remember the panic about the africanized honey bees taking over the country. that was a long time ago.
fire ants are much worse. if someone felt they had to be destructive they could learn how to disrupt those and go south to start fighting them back. i've also heard about crazy ants being a challenge. ants are tough customers to eradicate but it can be done with a very concerted/coordinated effort.
the invasive hornets, yes, it would be good if you could fight them back now before they really get established and spread even further. some really dedicated people could make a lot of difference now while it is still early.
