I fully expect to see the invasion of midges in the spring. It happens every year and while I don’t like them, I do expect them. Zillions of midges. All over the doors, windows and totally filling the numerous spider webs that pop up overnight and get caught in your face and hair when you venture outside.
I do not expect to get bombarded by bugs in the fall. Especially bugs that I don’t normally see here in vast numbers and don’t want to see here, thank you. Sneaking in when you open the door so that they can attach themselves to your curtains, sofa, and everything else they can find. They don’t bite, but can hurt you nonetheless when you twist your ankle jumping back off the chair that you climbed on to swat them when they decided they liked to hang upside-down on your ceiling.
I know the midges are one of the disadvantages of living close to the lake. Are these 2 inch long bugs also?
Are these the insect version of the Daddy Long Legs spider? Momma Long Legs perhaps? And if they are water bugs, what are they doing on and in my house? There hasn’t been any rain around here for days!!
So go away bug. Go back to the lake. I don’t want you here. Scat. Shoo. Be gone. Fly away home. Oh I know that last one’s for a different bug but I thought I’d try it anyway.
