So I don’t know if anyone has seen the news about the invasion of the grasshoppers in Vegas or not. Well let get ya up to speed. They are freaking
everywhere man. It sucks and I don’t even live in Vegas. I live in Henderson at a higher elevation and have a very pretty sight of a sea of lights
from my backyard which normally I like to take a cigarette break and gaze at. But NO not as of late. Even when I let my dog out hundreds just start
flying around and at least 4-5 fly in through the door every time. In the morning when I walk to my driveway to go to work hundreds swarm and a few
always get in the car the few seconds I have the door open. Hell yesterday my neighbor and I drank a beer sitting in our lawn chairs in the street
watching neighbors run from their car into their house. It was actually pretty funny, they acted as if they were bees or something.
Right now as I make this thread I am in my garage with the door maybe two feet up and these little fecks are just flying in here. I mean these guys
are everywhere man. But at least they will be gone in about a week and then I can finally sit outside and do my nightly thing.
I don’t really mind when they get in the house as it gives my cats something to do. But when they get in the car and I am driving and they are just
flying and hopping around it can be a distraction which is dangerous. Generally I pull of right before I hit the main road and do my best to catch
them and throw them out. Funny thing is that every time I pull off there is someone else doing the same thing.
