Mosquitoes, Ants and Beach Vitex

The word is out.  There is a free buffet from 5:30 a.m. to 7:45 a.m.  For the mosquitoes that is!!!  We ran to the beach and we raced back to the shed.  Swatting the whole time.

Ants right in the center of nest #1.

Beach Vitex  has a very woody vine.

On the Beach Vitex Vine, the leaves grow opposite one another as in the picture to the left.  There is another vine that looks like Beach Vitex, but the leaves are alternating.

 Karen taking a GPS reading of the Beach Vitex which is a very invasive plant.  Beach Vitex will wipe out all other plant life.  Turtles are not  able to nest in it.
