Hello fellow landowners:
This is an invitation to attend a program sponsor by Texas A&M about CrazyAnts from our local County Extension Agent, Stephen Janak. These pesky little ants are harder to get rid of than fire ants; I would highly recommend attending this program. [Please see linked attachment below for details.]

I recently learned of King Ranch bluestem,Bothriochloa ischaemum var. songarica . I honestly do not know if it has taken up residence at Oakridge, but do be on the lookout.

I am not providing a picture of the invasive Japanese Honeysuckle, Lonicera japonica, because I suspect most, if not all of us recognize the vine and have fond memories of the summertime fragrance. We have found several vines on our tract. It appears to not particularly like the drought conditions, but it is here. My recommendation is to pull it out to keep it from establishing a foothold.
