We used to put out a bug zapper at our cabin. We stopped because the zapping gets annoying, plus it usually doesn't take long before it needs to be cleaned to function again. Now we turn on the flood lamp, let em all fly and land on the cabin, and hit em with the Yard guard. We had 3 inches of dead bugs accumulated along the cabin at one point. If you get the right kind it'll stick to the siding and proceed to kill more bugs for some time.

But that was all in vain, you still get eaten alive if your unprotected at the wrong times.

In the town where I live, they are usually terrible during the summer. The city is so proud of them that when they sprayed them one night last summer, they forgot to mix the chemical with the water in the spray tank. I really think they did it because the city is proud of how big they grow here. I have always wondered why they seem to get bigger and healthier after they have been sprayed. Maybe they are using miracle grow in their mixture.

I recognize that webcam !! That east side of Mille grows 'em bigger than owls !! I use to keep my icehouse there and use it as a makeshift cabin in the summer. On some hatch days, the trees would have swarms of them in it, and the whole thing would be buzzing... The walleye's love 'em !

    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change! 
    • dang I can see why anyone would slobber!!!!
    • Fletch's hands are totally tied by his own doing, keep in mind our 1st round pick this year was 15 games of Hanzal...definitley not worth it. Fletch needs to get off his duff and pull the trigger on a Scandella trade real soon for a decent Forward and not pass up an OK opportunity by "hoping" for the homerun and missing out on a good opportunity.  IMO our only hope is that other teams are "watered down" more than we are and that our vets can hang in there one more year.
    • Wondermous!!  Anytime, fivebucks! Years of workin' on that stuff does count for something!!!  I wish ya WOULDA bet me!!     Glad ya got 'er done!!!
