I mentioned this on my facebook page but I would like to share it with y'all!! SOOOOOO a few years ago I noticed that our jasmine trees had ants allllll over them. As I looked closer I saw scale. Since they were outside I decided to just let it go until the fall when they come inside. When I checked it again the ants AND the scale were GONE!!! I couldn't believe it. I just thought that it was just some weird event:) THIS year my favorite myrtle topiary had scale so I took it outside and found some ants, really easy to do this year, and put them onto the plant. In about a week they had cleaned that plant as well! Even the stickyness was gone!!! I don't think that ANTS COULD REALLY MOVE A RUBBER TREE PLANT but they sure can clean up the scale:) I have a new respect for those little critters:)
It has been really hot and humid so I haven't finished painting the porch, I have been sitting on it though, not as long as I would like because I feel like I am sitting in a sauna!! When it gets a little less humid I will get back to the porch. We still need to paint the doors and the shelves.
I hope y'all are keeping cool and drinking LOTS of water!! I like to put lemon in mine and it is so refreshing that I don't want anything else. I DO have my sweet tea at least once a day though!!
OK I am outta here!! And don't forget to thank a Service Member for his or her service to our great country!!
Oh yeah, here is a little bit of trivia~~~~~ The heat in Afghanistan at this time of the year is about 130 degrees with high humidity! I try to remind myself of that when I think I can't stand the heat anymore!
Have a GREAT week!!!!!!!!
