OK. Not really. We got a couple more inches of snow last night. BUT these guys think it is!See, our Christmas tree came with a complimentary praying mantis nest stuck in the branches. I told my son to take it outside, and instead he put it in his room and never told us. His room is a disaster. He put it on top of his dresser, which is even worse. Well, it fell off and into his top drawer where his undies and socks and pajamas all are!
So, last night he came running downstairs and asking me for a plastic container.
"Don't ask any questions. Just hurry!"
Red flags! Alarms! Bells and whistles!
You see, each nest on average contains 100-200 babies!!! They can have as many as 400. By the time he found them, they were EVERYWHERE! Down the dresser, into his drawers, all over his clothes, behind the dresser, under the dresser, in with his matchboxes, on the walls, in the carpet.
Itch. Itch. Itch.
These are just a few of them. I don't think we will ever find them all, although I am sure we got more than 100. They are a little more than 1/4" long and very skinny.
He will most definitely be cleaning his room. Thoroughly!
