While mowing this afternoon I found several mounds of dirt that weren't associated with fire ants. Something is burrowing into the berm I built in the front yard, so I must deploy the Hav-A-Hart trap. I don't know if this population has anything to do with the droppings I've found on the front porch and on the swing glider. I should have a wildlife camera set up with infra red out there.
No trimmer yet; the store hadn't received today's shipment and the guy said it is often 10-14 days waiting for delivery to the store. I won't make that mistake again. I also worked in the veggie garden a little, just long enough for a few ants to find their way onto my clothes and occasionally stroll onto an arm or my neck.
A bright flashlight arrived on the porch today via Amazon; listed as a "spotlight" it's very lightweight and has a USB cord to charge. Times have certainly changed as far as flashlight technology, but I will once again be able to shine a light clear to the back fence to catch the old deaf dog's attention late at night when he gets started barking.
