Since the weather has become warmer, the number of insects around has increased dramatically. Especially those that are getting inside. In the last few weeks we have had bull ants (on the ceiling!), earwigs (some with wings), a few varieties of spiders, several varieties of moths, a butterfly, millipedes, a house centipede (yuck!), and the usual flies and mosquitoes. Thankfully, the wasps and bees stayed outside. Not to mention the large number of cicada shells hugging the various trees and wooden posts in the garden. The sound of an Australian summer in the hills is the deafening, continuous roar of the cicadas.
