'Tis The Season
There are plenty of heebie-jeebies-inducing bugs in Florida all year round, but this time of year our space is being invaded by the Eastern lubber grasshopper (Romalea microptera or R. guttata, depending on your source).
The lubbers are fond of most vegetation, but in my yard, they are especially fond of our grape leaves - which we harvest and use to make stuffed grape leaves!
They also seem to enjoy just hanging on the pool enclosure. Go figure.
