Heh, well I guess the thread title pretty much says it! We've had more moisture in my area than usual but the last couple weeks I swear they are on steroids. I picked up a 32 ounce bottle of Garden Tech "Sevin" at City Market (Kroger chain store) this afternoon and I am going to declare war on this bunch of chompers as soon as the sun goes down and it cools off. I'll see how the "Sevin" works, it's not set up with a hose attachment, it's just a spray bottle. I'll go into town tomorrow and go to Lowe's or Ace Hardware as soon as my mechanic waves his magic wand to say "Jeep--RUN!!"

I tried one of those cheap old fashioned solutions--a bucket of water and a bunch of soap. And whacked the hell out of them. It helped a tad but not enough IMO.. Will do overtime duty on this later tonight!

And yes, where they seem to have a huge presence is around the swamp cooler, of course.

Suggestions are welcome from you folks!
