Big bugs

Things around here come in two sizes - big and small. There is no "medium" size around here. The bugs that is. The first thing are the ants. They are incredible! If you leave something out on the counter - give it about 10 minutes and it will be completely surrounded with up to 100+ tiny miniscule ants. I would love to take pics, but you just wouldn't be able to see them. This is an on-going battle that I won't win. These ants are different than those you are accustomed to. They don't go for any ant traps, and they come out of NO WHERE! I can't even express how amazing they are. We have seen them pull a full-grown dead grasshopper across the floor and into their ant hill in about 30 minutes. They will completely demolish a dead cockroach in half a day. It's just amazing to see. They bug me, and I have a fight with them daily - actually, probably 4 to 5 times a day. They win every time, but at least I feel better. The moths are incredible to see. This is a moth that came to visit the other day. I had Madison put her hand up as a comparison. We have seen a few of these around and are amazed each time we see them.
