Sounds like he could rent picnic space, but other than that... it's a bit unsettling.
The first thing I'd be curious about, is do his neighbors have flies? Ants?
We're barely 50F (10c) and I've already seen flies here this spring.

This is the uv index for today. It's high, but is it abnormal?  13.gif

Kill a critter and leave it laying. Flies will come.

What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice

The ants and flies were raptured?

They saw what was going on in Detroit and hauled ass?

They are fucking with the farmer and are having a big laugh.

Going to the time trials in Indianapolis in May I usually managed to get a sunburn.
If there was any time of year it would happen it would be in May... the combo of no sun all winter and the intensity of the May sun was the trick.

This is nothing to worry about, trust me I've been farming for years, they will come back. People and animals will disappear long before insects if UV has anything to do with it. chuckle.gif

That's right, in nature it is all about finding food.

A dead Moose would probably keep them occupied for several weeks.
