One thing for sure is the Atlantic and Gulf are NOT busy at all. Has the NHC revised their forecast yet?

The July rainfall difference in Western KY was crazy.  Parts of McLean/Ohio County saw 10-11 inches of rain whereas parts of Graves/Calloway only saw 2 inches of rain for the month.

My area stayed pretty dry until the last week of July.  With the increased rain, I have noticed the bugs, especially mosquitos have really jumped up in the population.  I am seeing more ants this year than usual as well.  Like Crockett said spiders are getting pretty common as well.

I had resident yellow jackets on my back porch 2 summers in a row now..

Last year, they flew up my basketball shorts while I was shooting my bow. Yes, they stung me multiple times.

Last Saturday, I was packing up to move and got stung in the back of the hand when I grabbed the propane tank out from under the grill.


I have no idea the significance, but they weren't here the first 2 years I lived in this house.

Sounds like they're nesting somewhere around your porch. I have a lot of fruit trees, and I mow right through the fallen apples and pears that are being fed on veraciously by yellow jackets. I've never been stung doing that. I've never been stung by a yellow jacket unless their nest is disturbed.

I haven't found any yellow jackets nests yet but the mowers I talk to say it's worse this year than they've ever seen it. Obviously that's not the result of this year's wet weather but it's still interesting. Last year I destroyed 12 yellow jackets nests in my 1-acre lawn which is just a stupid amount. Hopefully I don't find any more this year.

Also I can confirm that spiders haven't gone anywhere.  ;D I walked through Peabody WMA up in StormNine's neck of the woods last weekend and I'm still picking spider webs out of my nostrils and my hair.

The excess rainfall is actually becoming a nuisance on this side of the state. Gardeners are losing crops to fungal diseases.

Meanwhile, I lost my hop harvest to dry conditions here.

While it hasn't been nearly as wet here the bugs are crazy around here versus normal. Either the lack of spiders or something but its just infested around crops. Never seen it this bad in 20 years.
