We Are Well-Protected From a Plague of Locusts

Daisy loves summer. Summer means bugs, and bugs make great play toys. There has been an influx of grasshoppers in our backyard over the past few days. Daisy is in heaven. Grasshoppers are the perfect bug toys: they hop around erratically, but not so much that Daisy can’t catch them. And even better, they don’t seem to know when they’re supposed to be dead, so they keep providing entertainment long after they’ve been mangled. It’s great from my perspective because I don’t have to resort to pesticides to protect my plants. I just let Daisy out back and a while later the patio is littered with dead and half-dead grasshoppers. All is well as long as she doesn’t actually eat the pests. Have you ever cleaned up dog vomit filled with grasshopper parts? Whew! That’s a foul brew.
