Blister Beetles

They've arrived.

We've seen a few here and there while picking green beans this week but today was the first time I saw a horde.


They were doing a number on the remaining napa cabbages in the row next to where I was picking green beans.  



These bugs absolutely disgust me.  Luckily III feels the same way.  It didn't take long for him to get out the flame weeder and light their fast little butts up.  Before he did though I took a short video of them feeding on the cabbage.  It's amazing how quickly they move when they catch sight of movement or a shadow heading their direction.

Yuck.
