I don't know exactly what they are called, but they're the most annoying little things. They burrow into the dirt and spread their larvae all over whatever plants are nearby. Their number seems to double every other day and I haven't found anything that kills them except cold weather. I hadn't ever seen these things until I moved to Baton Rouge from Alabama. Does anybody know a way to get rid of them?
Diluted dish soap seems to have no effect other than holding them down for a few hours. :/
