Message from John Mosby in tradworker #homesteading
We had a BAD tick problem last year, but we generally dont get them much
I remember I had maps from the CDC that showed the tick population from like 2012 to now, and it shows how much the tick population has grown.
Ill tell u what are spreading across the States, bad, are freaking fire ants.
Sounds like an arizona, california, and texas thing.
They are making their way across the states...they are now popping up in TN.
We got them down in SoIL
@John Mosby I doubt they will make up to NYS though, the climate is too hostile for them.
The species migration is the only thing that really makes me wonder about global warming
It has happened all the time and will continue to do so.
We had a TON in TX, but haven't seen any in East TN.
Scientists have said that fire ants will make it all the way up to Alaska, as they are so resistance to the elements.
I knew this hippie that had a theory that the dillas weren't actually moving north and that it was just a conspiracy by the truckers to trick people
My good friend's neighbor was riding his tractor through his field and flipped it onto a fire ant hill, and got pinned...they ate him alive.
Yerp...they actually kill more people than u'd think...mostly kids and people who are allergic, but that was a crazy case.
They were everywhere in Houston...got bit on almost a daily basis.
TWP we homesteadin' again?
Permaculture is the best culture
Would anyone here be interested in me posting some of my herbal tea and tincture recipes in here in a PDF?
Drop that shit nibba
Granted I live in an area with absolutely no real vegetation that isn't SUCCulent or shrub
Cactus tea fam
Aloe isn't native here. It's Junipers, Pancake Cactus, Jumping Cactus, and Oak brush.
Oh and Spanish Bayonets/Yucca
You guys have cedars there?
Do you know the species?
Utah Junipers make up the majority of trees out here. There's a mountain range with a ton of Pinyon Pines near me. Flagstaff has cedars and aspens and such.
We also have Joshua's and Ocotillo
Gay desert shit
The Virgin woodlands VS The Chad Desert
