What would you think if you saw a â€œropeâ€ going across the sidewalk? Well, at first glance it looks like an odd sort of â€œropeâ€, but upon closer inspection, you see thousands of little â€œinsectsâ€ sliding across the cement.
Christopher was finishing out his exercise with some stretches, when he discovered these terrible looking insects. He came home, called the widow who lived at that house, and then came to her rescue with insect â€œkillerâ€ spray. From what I heard described, I thought this could possibly be a Moody adventure, so I hurried out with my camera. The lady contacted our local extension office, and they assured her that she didnâ€™t need to be concerned. Farmers will even use these little guys for something beneficial. So although they were pretty disgusting (just be glad you werenâ€™t the cat that stepped in them!), it was nice to know we donâ€™t have neighborhood invaders!
