    While you can find representatives all year, yes, they have different timelines for different species.

    Hello...is there anybody in there

    Good to know. I always wondered why it didn't grow back in subsequent years. I always let them go in my garden, I love them.

    Looks like verbascum (mullein).

    Permethrin ads

    To be fair, there are a lot of permethrin products that are approved for dogs, and that have been found safe and effective. Some of them have been bestsellers (like K-9 Advantix).

    You think ticks are bad?

    The stink bugs in my house look alarmingly like kissing bugs. The only way to tell the difference, other than size, is the flat area on the rear legs. (flat area = stink bug, no flat area = kissing bug). The stink bugs have the marginal orange stripes and everything.

    Ok, that's bad. And they look so much like regular stink bugs.

    Kittens, cute but sad

    Lots of non-feral cats are euthanized in shelters because there aren't enough homes for them all, and feral adult cats are pretty hard to tame and take a lot of time. A lot of them will never become tame enough.
