Alabama: Can you Spot The Dangerous Pest Destroying Neighborhoods
I bet you couldn't spot the very well-camouflaged pest. I know I couldn't.
These insects are destroying neighborhoods all over America and now have made their way to our beautiful state.
Liv Volker recently shared a video on Tik Tok (video below) of what's been causing everything in her yard to die.
She reaches up into the tree,
And shockingly pulls down the beautiful but dangerous lantern fly.
The Spotted Lantern Fly.
The experts say the first thing you should do if you spot the Lantern Fly, is kill it. We have been warned.
Liv Volker has lots of videos showing us the destruction these things can cause.
We also recently had a river monster captured that could destroy our rivers.
This is terrible news for those like me, who have an unnatural fear of getting eaten up by something in the water.
The beach isn't even enjoyable since the gators started showing up in the shallows.
It seems like all these nasty creatures are making their way to our Alabama waterways. Take a wild guess where they are coming from.
Look at this monster that recently made its way into our Alabama River.
Then we had the Pacu. These fish are affectionately known as the nutcracker. It's known to eat flesh and attack male private parts. Thus the nickname.
If that doesn't keep you out of the water, this might.
The Arapaima is a big, athletic fish. Like tarpon, Arapaima is capable of jumping out of the water for food.
The Arapaima will eat small mammals, lizards, birds, and other fish.
Yes, fido could be on the dinner table.
The Arapaima can grow up to 10 feet long and weigh hundreds of pounds. It is also one largest predatory fish. Its scales are like armor.
The Arapaima also produces hundreds of thousands of eggs during its lifetime.
One good thing is, people, have also figured out a way to cook it like we do everything else.
I guess you gotta try everything once.
At this point, I just may have to stick to the swimming pool.
States with the most registered hunters
LOOK: Here's where people in every state are moving to most
If you live in Alabama and don't know what this is, you probably should start getting educated.
We are under assault by a deadly and invasive creature.
They have been showing up everywhere lately.
They've even come up as far north as Huntsville, AL.
Just a random gator crossing the road, nothing to see here. NOT!
I'm worried these giants are getting way too close for comfort.
We even have a gator hunting season here in Alabama now.
Earlier today Michael Spain posted this photo.
I had no idea what I was looking at.
I was shocked to find out this is a gator nest! Not just a gator nest, but a gator nest right here in Alabama.
Michael Spain said in his post
"This is an alligator nest, I thought I might share it with the group. This was taken at Alligator Alley, a home for nuisance alligators in Alabama, but they are allowed to be Gators here."
How terrifying? You have to know mama is never far away.
I don't know about the rest of you, but I want no part of the future gators in this nest. We have to start getting this gator population under control here in the great state of Alabama. I have no desire to fish alligators out of our pools, creeks, lakes, and where ever else.
Keep an eye out for these alligators' nests. They are usually near the bank and have a large pile of debris.
DON'T FORGET TO KEEP YOUR EYES OPEN FOR MAMA, SHE DOESN'T PLAY.
