Last weekend, what started as pulling up a bunch of weeds, ended up me pulling up the 3 kinds of grass from our (tiny) front lawn. When finished, I plan to put in some drought friendly plants that are pretty and low maintenance. In the meantime, Dyllan brought out his "Critter Carnival" for me to add what ever I found crawling around. (he got this last year for his birthday)
And some of the things I found were pretty creepy. If I had not been wearing my gloves when finding them, I might have screamed a bit. I can handle worms in my bare hand, no sweat but creepy crawlies makes my skin crawl.
It's fun to watch them run around or go through things. You can find this on amazon here and there is a cute video short about it. I don't recommend ant, they crawl right out, and spiders will spin webs and make everything sticky. There is a spot to add some water and two strange holes in the container that I put tape across so the bugs would not go inside the base.
