Re: Re: Kitty's mites now neem

Fran, I see those little red bugs in my garden too. They are tiny, mite
size, but not microscopic...'bout half the size of an aphid and shaped
kind of like a spider or tick. Never been bitten by one...but when I see
them, there are usually a bunch of them all over a rock or in one
specific area. Don't know what they are. Maybe it's an Okie bug thing.
