We must have skipped a season

I didn't see a single buckmoth caterpillar anywhere this year. And now we've already moved on into termite season.
Formosan termites are swarming throughout the New Orleans area on Thursday night (May 22), as a combination of meteorological conditions provided just the right conditions for the winged, reproductive version of the insect to leave their nests.

Hundreds of termites were flittering around light poles in the French Quarter, and were reported flying at Zephyrs Field where an AAA baseball game was underway.
Time.. flies.. as it were. Only a few more weeks until roach season.

Take a walk on Carrollton near my place. Still caterpillars everywhere.
