I was laying on my bed, doing my leg stretches, looking at the tablet, when I saw a little tiny bug on the screen. It didn't squish at first and the more I looked the more I was thinking it was something difficult to eliminate. (I know some people who have had recent bedbug problems). So I got a piece of tape and stuck that bug in the tape so I could get a good look ar it. I breathed a sigh of relief when I realized it was just a hatchling tick. I saw another one a little later and it is stuck in tape too.

They must have crawled on the tablet when I laid it down so I could get back off the ground after I took pictures of my caterpillar.

So much better than being other bugs!

My son had bb's in his apartment once. Picked them up at work. Fortunately they found out and got rid of them before they became a big problem. Unfortunately the employer did not pay for the very expensive treatment.

We just released 7 more guinea fowls on our property...they are tick eating machines, and haven't had a single tick on our 4 dogs all year. We went camping to a nice state park CG, and we picked off 6 ticks in one day.

At least with ticks, you know where they came from...BBs can (and do) hide anywhere !
