For those of you who do Not live in Texas, I feel the need to educate you about some things you may not have in your area.
Texas is a wonderful place.
But, those of us who are lucky enough to call it home also have to pay our dues by dealing with some things that are a tad less than idealistic.
Today we'll start with the Numero Uno, Evil, Nasty, pest.
Fire ants will find you!
You can't sit anywhere in the yard because of fire ants.
You can't work in the garden without gloves because of fire ants.
Newly hatched chicks are killed by fire ants.
I lost a litter of kittens to fire ants.
Fire ants are pure evil!!
and nope... I have found NO cure for the evil buggers that doesn't involve the use of some really nasty chemicals.
There..... Now you know our little secret. you can feel better about not living in Texas. ;)
