Thread: Hate these things.

  1. #1

    Hate these things.

    Tent moth caterpillars. Saskatoon in general and my neighbourhood in particular,has a lush urban forest. From a plane one can hardly see any houses in the river valley where I live. Every few years we have an infestation and this...is one of those years.

    The point and shoot back up is almost good enough for these pictures.

    I hate all bugs. Burn them all, except for the bees, since honey and flowers are good.

    Reminds me of the canker worms that were a huge problem growing up in Winnipeg. If the street had trees, you could guarantee there were canker worms hanging down just waiting to demonize you on your way past.

    one night I dreamed I was locked in my fathers watch, with Ptolemy and twenty one ruby stars mounted on spheres and the primum mobile coiled and gleaming to the end of space and the notched spheres eating each other's rinds to the last tooth of time and the case closed - John Ciardi ...

    That's the other big problem here. We've got the same basic climate and trees as Winnipeg.

    We would be awash in dead things without bugs to break them down. Then we'd all catch nasty stuff from the dead things and die ourselves.

    And then we'd have the zombie apocalypse. Or something.

    hmmmm...what watch?

    Just kidding.
