Venus Flytrap Having Supper

Venus Flytrap, Dionaea muscipula
This is the way we deal with insects in the Sandhills of North Carolina.

I've heard that the mosquitos are tough around Pinehurst and Southern Pines but I haven't noticed any yet. I DO have Carpenter Bees the size of an Army CH-47D Chinook but they don't have any stingers so all they can do is buzz bomb you, but they are terrifying at first.

In Tidewater, Virginia the Army was nice enough to fly over every Summer and bomb my home with poison that killed all the skeeters, along with the fireflies, honey bees, fact, I'm not feeling so good.....

And people wonder why the Chesapeake Bay is dying.
