Now that it's a little cooler and we've gotten some rain, the bugs are out. In particular, crickets. That chirping they do is so incredibly annoying. This year I unleashed outdoor bug spray right after the rain let up. And it seems to have worked. I can hear them on other lots nearby, buy not around my house. It's so darned annoying. I don't know how long this will last. Living in a hot climate, you've got to stay on top of bug problems. We've got termites, flies, crickets, scorpions and roaches. Just take you pick.
