More Squishing: I forgot to add to my list of things I will kill, the larvae of the cecopia moth. Even though I dislike moths, I won't go so far as chasing them down to kill them, but the larva is another story. I anticipate that I will dig up plenty of them today when I go out to plant the daffodils. They are a fat squishy curled up caterpiller thing which hides buried in the dirt, and when you squash them they squirt. Except if they are well along in development, in which case one can see the downy wings underneath the thin skin.
