Spring Arrives - So Do The Bugs
As spring arrives in Texas, so do the April bugs. These annual pests have once again descended upon the state, much to the annoyance of residents and farmers alike.
The April bugs, also known as May beetles or June bugs, are large, clumsy insects that emerge from the ground in late March or early April. They are attracted to light and can often be found flying around porch lights or buzzing into windows.
While these bugs may seem harmless, they can be a real nuisance. They can damage crops and gardens, and their loud buzzing can keep people awake at night. They also have a short lifespan, but during that time they can lay their eggs in soil, which can lead to even more bugs in the future.
Residents are advised to take precautions to keep the bugs at bay, such as turning off outdoor lights at night, keeping doors and windows closed, and using bug repellent when spending time outside. Farmers are also advised to take preventative measures to protect their crops from the bugs' destructive behavior.
Overall, while the arrival of the April bugs may be an unwelcome event, with some precautions and preventative measures, Texans can make it through this annual invasion unscathed.
