Spray on the insect repellent, clean your windshield … and smile
I don’t know how many of you really noticed it, but we had two summers in a row with virtually no bugs, thanks to the drought of 2012. A lack of any precipitation from April to September that year resulted in poor reproduction of insects. In 2013, we had better conditions, but the bugs didn’t rebound well, and in many cases didn’t start showing up until July or later. This year has been different. With good precipitation and vegetative growth, bugs are once again biting us and making a mess of our windshields. So why am I telling you to smile?
