I admit...I waited too long to mow my lawn.  But it hadn't been THAT freaking long!

A puff of smoke & a motor that sounded sick is never a good thing when you've got long grass & a decent buzz.

I knew, once I opened the hood & found this....I was in trouble...

I pulled off the air filter & found these little bastards...there was about 8 of them.

They actually are pretty cute when they're tiny.  But the cuteness wears off when you realize the nest got down into the carburetor & is going to cost you money.

How do you keep these SOB's out of your mower?
