Saturday pests

It's been a pesty-filled week. First there was the March of the Pavement Ant Flying Brigade. Literally thousands of these buggers marched across our living room for bout 3 days straight!
The bug guy came out to inspect, but he advised knocking them off - he said they are "friendly" ants, quite harmless. They have a colony around the foundation. But he pointed out that there is a colony of horrible brutal ugly aggressive bad ants living in the yard that are just waiting for these nice guys to disappear so they can move in to their territory. He said we DO NOT want that to happen! So, the peeps put up with it for a few days, with only minimal death dealt out to the hordes that tresspased inside the house.
There were yard pest too. Mom took this from inside looking down on one of the new flower gardens she made:
Cheeky rabbit! We'd take care of him & his family except that mom won't let us out in the unfenced part of the yard where they mainly stay. We did dispatch one inside our fenced yard, though. 1 down, 10 to go.
Then there was this big obnoxious pest on the deck:
Ha ha ha, Jack, very funny!
Woo know what they say about payback, Mister!

She has no sense of humor on Saturdays.
Guess I'll have to watch my back.

Happy Saturday to woo, too!

a-roos to yous,

Jack, you are too funny. We are absolutely certain you would not want to eradicate that big pest:) We know you would miss her.

But Mom says she would have gone nuts with those ants in the house - we are having enough trouble trying to get rid of all the silverfish displaced by the loss of the old roof:(

Have a great weekend.

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

My mum would have quite possibly launched a nuclear attack against those ants. She does not like bugs in the house.

Wow-those are some creepy ants. So sorry for your troubles, I don't know how you did it putting up with them. I hope you were finally able to get rid of them.

Now the rabbits, that sounds like a good job for Moo and Jack. Only one so far? You've got to work on your coaxing technique to get them in the yard then Wham! they are yours!

Just some friendly advise, hunter to hunter. :)

Jack - your pal Kodiak agrees that those sisters can be a pest because they always seem to win the smack down games. So, Friday night, he teamed up with Qannik (Rusty was having nothing to do with it) and went after Cheoah in a full scale wrestling match. Even at her 40 lbs, she handled both 55+ lb boys with ease.

Oh no! My momma would FREAK if she saw that. We had termites swarming in our basement once and she went total mental.

Hey! You know those bad ants with the big nest? We had like a totally gigantic and the bug guy came and dropped some sort of bomb down it and eradicated them for sure.

Slobbers,
