Good morning or whatever time of day it is in your neck of the woods. I don't know if this happens where you live, but in our area (Eastern seacoast and Cape Cod) in the Spring our oak trees and others are infested with ugly black caterpillars. They are everywhere and chew the tree leaves. Some are stripped down to practically no leaves. Now that Summer is here they have transformed into ugly moths. they have invaded our space unmercifully. When you get up in the morning and pull up the shades there they are just hanging outside waiting for a chance to sneak in if you should open a door or window. At night they congregate around the outside light and bump into the windows and we don't open the doors if we can help it. Some years are worse than others and this year is what the call "the worserest" in several years. There is no sure way of getting rid of them and for the life of me I don't know what their purpose is. Reminds me of that Alfred Hitchcock movie from long ago..The Birds....only we have The Moths. Nothing pretty about them either....Anyway, along with the heat it has been an uncomfortable Summer. I remember saying back in the frigid Winter days that I would not complain about the hot Summer days ( not to mention "the moths", and here I am doing just that. Thanks for letting me vent. Have a great week-end and enjoy the outdoors if you are lucky enough to. Later, Luv, Alice ♥

I hate those Gypsy Moths. I remember them when I lived up in western NY. I hated the fact that the airplanes were spraying chemicals that you could actually taste if you were out and about when they happened to be spraying, but after two years of enduring those late summer caterpillars that had mandibles that were big enough to make you feel their bite if they fell on your skin, I was glad for the aerial spraying because it wiped them out.

I can sympathize, Alice. Been there, done that.
