    The Trouble With Termites…

    Aside from the obvious, they will eat your house, it is expensive to have your house fumigated to kill them. Then to add insult to injury, if you happen to raise fish and / or plants in or around your house it gets even worse because the chemicals that kill the termites also kill plants and animals. So what is normally inconvenient, becomes a real pain in the backside…

    An empty shadehouse is a very lonely sight



    All the nepenthes and air plants had to be moved into temporary shelter in the back yard







    Then comes the tent…



    Two days later things are more or less back to normal


    Since I had to move everything anyhow I took the opportunity to rearrange a bit and take photos…

    Seeing the similarity to oneself, one should not use violence or have it used.
