I went out to plant some flowers last Saturday morning
and instead of a warm, beautiful day
I was greeted by this:

My first thought was who threw dirt all over my patio?

My second thought was EWWWWW.....
why is the dirt
M.O.V.I.N.G. !!!!!

To make a long story short
( I know, hard to think I could do that)
The entire complex of 15 units
looked exactly the same
infested with some type of aphid
so small that you could hardly see them
Billions and Billions is not an exaggeration.

So $30.00 worth of bug spray later
and a professional as well
They are starting to die off...
but not fast enough for me.

At least they aren't in the house.....
but I can't help feeling
the creepy, crawly things are all over me
even though they aren't.
I can't stress that enough
Just writing about it
is giving me the feeling that
I need another shower......

  1. That is seriously the craziest thing - and it really does look like dirt. I am now itching all over!! Glad you got it under control!!
