Yuppers glenn the move into our houses is underway. Noticed a lot of their larvae in the corn feeding on aphids while we were doing yield checks a few weeks back. Was almost positive it wouldn't be pretty once they ran out of aphids to feed on. Looks like we were right.

Yup,jap beetles started showing up in july this summer at my place,neighbor has traps out,every week he dumps out a couple dozen but not as bad a 2 years ago when he would fill a 5 gal bucket 1/2 full every week,whatever bait he uses drew them critters from my yard to his traps.

lately I have hoards of flying ants pouring out of the ground at my place,(sandy soil),burrow holes everywhere,been using charcoal fluid to fix the issue.

and yes,dang boxelder bugs yesterday as well.plan to mix up a batch of soapy water in sprayer tonight,hope it works,creepy crawlers,at least they don't bite.

Jap beetle trap that works well~

Contains deltamethrin, one of the newer generation synthetic pyrethroids. It appears to be targeted largely at the home use market although it is also being used to treat stored grain for insects with the loss of products like Dursban. Much of what we're applying for insecticide in crops is moving away from synthetic pyrethroids due to insects developing resistance and the products are generally tough on beneficial insects such as ladybeetles. Should do a bang up job on them.  :happy1:

Years ago we bought an old house with limestone foundation.  It was full of boxelder bugs in the fall.  I mean thousands.  Couldn't see the rock.  I heard about the soap thing and mixed up a real strong Dawn and warm water mixture and splashed it all over on the limestone.  Worked great.  Had to do just a little the next year and never saw them again.

Boxelder bugs are the absolute wimps of the insect world. Think you could fart & kill them. Here they're cyclical, tending to be worse in drier seasons. They were gawd awful in the drought of '88. Got into everything. Would wake up & they'd be crawling on you at nite. We replaced our furnace in '98. The blower fan had a lot more umph than the old one did. The 1st time we started it up, 100's of dead boxelder bug carcasses blew out of all the vents. Gift that keeps on giving.

They've been around but not to bad yet. I usually take the trusty fly swatter after them each nite.

Of course now a cooler of beer and I'll have all day. If they get worse the chemical comes out.

Damn  they reappeared last evening,elders with a handful asian beetles but not the japs...my small 1 gallon sprayer was 1/2 full of a bleech mixture I used to white wash my patio,so I unloaded the remaining liquid on my critters,seemed to work well,100's came out from under my siding when I sprayed the foundation,strong bleech smell made my eyes water and did a number on the elder bugs.

Tempo is good stuff too. It's the same active ingredient as in Baythroid which wasn't a big seller in the ag market but suddenly found a niche in the household market for killing ladybugs. Have not seen any boxelder bugs here, yet. Plenty of multi-colored Asian lady beetles tho. With the corn starting to come off, aphid populations dwindling in the corn and warm temps on the way for tomorrow, suspect they'll be on the warpath.  :sad:

Tempo is good for spying the buildings too to keep the spiders off.

that's what we used it for when we first started using it, the side bonus was getting rid of the rest!!!

Iíve met two people that were bitten by brown recluse spiders. One was a casual acquaintance that told me he had been bitten and spent time in a hospital. It was either Ohio or Kentucky. The other is the daughter of a neighbor who lives in. California. She was moving firewood when she was bitten. She had an inch or so of her finger amputated. I never used to wear gloves, but after that and the Minnesota  guy who died of rabies after being bitten by a bat in his firewood a few years ago, I try not to handle firewood without gloves.
I also know a guy that was bitten by a cottonmouth in Arkansas. He spent a long time in the hospital and then on crutches for a few months.

Agreed fwidow,read a story about a guy using a outhouse got bit in the arese by a recluse,he died later that day,another guy moving dead tree's was bit by a recluse,almost lost his arm as the doc couldn't stop the venom eating his flesh away,but most often this critter is found in southern climates,but not in north central u.s.a. but things are changing,deer ticks abound statewide these days,timber rattlers found all along the mississippi and st croix rivers up to hudson wisc.

buddy sent me this pic from se minnesota wilst camping along the whitewater river,timber rattler.
