Milk Room Invasion

19 Sep

My milk room has been invaded, and we are at war.  All of the rain we’ve had has caused bazillions and bazillions of mosquitoes to hatch.  Where Haley and Zinnia are standing is bare dirt.  Then the dew comes off the roof of the garage and keeps it muddy.

Zinnia and Haley

They stand outside waiting for their turn, and the mosquitoes just swarm the poor girls.  (Warning:  If you do not like bugs and blood, you  might want not want to continue.)

That means every time I open the door for a goat, half a bazillion mosquitoes come in with them.

I think I’m going to have to repaint my walls after it freezes because they are looking a bit spotted with black bodies and blood splotches.

It’s hard to milk when you are flipping your hair and constantly waving mosquitoes off the goats.

I really hate when I end up with one getting shot down into my milk.  I am ready for these little buggers to be gone.

I’m thinking about asking the spider to move into the milk room instead of being outside the door on the other side of the fence.

        Fly strips?

  2. Oh dear. That is awful. I would hate that.

    Vesta has a good idea, with the fly strips. It’d be worth a try, at least….
