These little buggers (or should I say BIG buggers) are taking over my garden. These are sand hornets or cicada killers to others. Sure "They" say the sand hornet is docile. I'm not going to press my luck. "They" say, that only the female has a stinger. Once again, not going to press my luck. I can't even go into my garden to pick vegetables without these things making fly-by passes of my head. Nope, not gonna press my luck. These are MY veggies!!! As much as I don't really want to kill these things, I was told that if I don't, they can take over a garden in no time. Which they have. So it looks like we are being invaded, once again, by some sort of pest that I have to fight off for our garden. It's getting kind of hard to eat from our garden when everything else wants to also.
So until next time,
Small Farm Girl, hornet killer.
P.s. That is not me holding that hornet. That is a picture I took off the net.
