I dig schwacking carpenter bees with my Wilson. Half falls at your feet, half flies across the yard...

OK, guess we don't get 'em down here. We do get horse flys and yellow flys though. They bite and you feel it!

Re: Ack, junebugs

Yeah, there down there, at least they were in Florida when I was there.. the term "junebug" is a rather generic term for those orange beetles that come out during the spring months.

and horseflys SUCK..
