We are trapped inside the house, due to the annual swarming of Asian ladybeetles. Well, not exactly trapped. The older kids and I spent the afternoon planting more garlic down in the garden, where the ladybeetles are mostly absent. And I sat on the porch this morning popping garlic cloves (and brushing ladybeetles away). But it is a beautiful day today, warm and clear, perfect for porch-sitting. Except for those ladybeetles covering everything. So maybe that qualifies as trapped.
Plenty of ladybeetles have found their way inside as well. Right now I hear the sound of the vacuum, as Chris once again makes the rounds of the house sucking up beetles from the walls and ceilings.
