As everywhere in the world there is a huge amount of bugs to constantly bug us! It seems we have an excess population of at least one type of bug each year, be it grass hoppers, moths, or flies. At least we don’t have those pesky little black flies that are abundant in humid areas or in the north. We have mosquitoes but they’re not too bothersome out here in the sticks. In 2018 I arranged to get bee hives on our property as we hardly ever saw bees – they have made a huge difference.
