I am Battling Ladybugs This Year

Quote of the Day

    On the plus side, probably no aphids in there!

      Given the choice between the two, I will take ladybugs every time. Overall, frogs cause the most trouble.

    Was the ladybug fried?

      Alas, the ladybug was fried. I actually have had quite a few PCBs come in with insects on them, but almost no frogs. I usually have more frogs than insects.
