Mutant Ninja Ladybugs

The nights are getting colder; and there are people combining soybeans. It has been confirmed by an indisputable sign. These things are finding their way into the house: Harmonia Axyridis, Asian Lady Beetle, Asian Ladybug (US), Asian Ladybird (UK).  By whatever name, they bite, they stink, they stain.  In order to stop them overwintering with us, I am Zorro of the hand-held-vac, merciless in my pursuit.

About Tweed and Briar

I am the pastor of a rather conservative rural congregation. My interests alongside of work are hunting, fly fishing, cooking, and life in an agricultural community. By way of family, I have a wife and two children: a daughter and a son. I am of indeterminate age because my wife is a bit younger than I am and my son is ages with some of my friends’ grandchildren. However, to say that I slip smoothly among the generations would imply an agility which I no longer possess. I aspire to the genteel poverty of the country manse.
