But it's beyond just moving out of the woods. There are literally NO bugs here. So far this year, I've seen 2 bees. 2. Now I'm not hanging out in fields of flowers or anything, but still...there should be more. Occasionally, I'll encounter a swarm of gnats, but only in one localized spot. Once you walk past them, there aren't any. I've seen one fly. Only one. We get some small ants in the entryway of our apartment, but even that is slight. It's very strange.
The thing that really made me confused was the other night. It was cold out, so I had the porch door open. We don't have a screen door. It was dark outside and i had the lights on inside. One light was right by the door. ZERO bugs came through that door. No moths. No gnats. Nothing. I haven't even seen lightening bugs. How is that possible? We live surrounded by cornfields - wouldn't there be some bugs to come from that?
It's a different world that back in the Pennsylvania "forrest".
