Buggin’ Out!


Garage sales provide a cheap and easy way to reduce, reuse, and recycle. Elections keep this the land of the free and the home of the brave. New bands playing at our favorite watering holes keep us dancing and young at heart. But they are not without their dark side: the signs. The copious, zealously taped signs! Pointing down this street and up that one to lead us to an estate sale, telling us to vote no on this proposition and yes on that candidate, or inviting us to drink beer while listening to the next big band, too often such signs are hastily attached to trees and poles without regard for the sticky hazard tape creates for the little ones who may call that tree their home or who might alight upon that pole for a rest. And while these signs are the most common offenders, they are by no means the only ones. Lost and found signs, temporary “No Parking” signs and other forms of notice and propaganda are likewise often sloppily taped to telephone poles, streetlights and street signs, leaving bits of exposed tape that act as miniature glue traps, a nuisance to bugs and bug lovers alike. What’s a conscientious person to do? Be prepared: Bug 911 is here.
