A 73 year old zipping around with butterfly net in hand may be a bit disconcerting to some. Maybe the men in white jackets will come after me yet. What the heck, you live only once. Live it with the mindset of a child as much as you can.

There is a serious side to my flitting about my property with net firmly grasped in my hand. And no, I would never capture a butterfly and pin it to a board. Their beauty is meant to be observed in the wild as Nature intended.

I purchased the net at Dollar Tree. The thin bamboo handle quickly snapped in two. I replaced it with a fiberglass rod left on my property by surveyors. It works quite well.

The net is another contrivance to do my part in the eradication of the cabbage moth, and do it without chemicals. I'm not keeping score, but I do wish I had a dollar for each one I've eliminated this way.

Fresh air, a warm sunny day, good exercise, and helping rid the countryside of a menace to our food supply. What more could a body ask for.

So, the neighbors think I'm nuts. Who gives a happy rap. I'm a man on a mission. To destroy every Pieris rapae I can.

Won't you join me?
