**Even though you may want to move forward in your life,
you may have one foot on the brakes.
In order to be free, we must learn how to let go.
Release the hurt. Release the fear.
Refuse to entertain your old pain. The energy it takes
to hang onto the past is holding you back from a new life.
What is it you can let go of today?**

"They leave their nesting when the ground floods so they are looking for new places to mate and looking for new sites to make their homes, so it's more or less a weather problem." He says the bugs are not dangerous, just an eyesore. And your windshield wipers only make it worse, so the best thing to do is wash your car.
"It's that time of year plus with the rain and storms we've had, it gets everything all flustered up." If you think you see them in your home, they can come check it out. The problem has improved since the weather has been better over the past few days.
