Elm Seed Bugs

If you live in Mesa, Delta, or Montrose counties, you may have new uninvited guests lurking outside your homes…Elm Seed Bugs.   This summer, I discovered that the outside of my home was quickly becoming a scene out of an Alfred Hitchock film, as small 6 legged beetle-like bugs began covering my house, trying to get inside.  We’re not talking a couple.  As of this week, were talking probably in the thousands.  It makes May Moth Madness look like a cake walk.

Luckily, the Make My Day law applies to Elm Seed Bugs, and the local Christian pest control company has been very helpful at keeping them on the outside of the house.  According to the exterminator, these little bugs made their way here from Idaho about 3 years ago (previously of Europe).  While they swarm in large numbers looking for elm seeds to eat, they try to get into your house when the weather turns hot.  Apparently, they appreciate swamp coolers just as much as we do.  

All in all, though, Elm Seed Bugs are actually pretty harmless.

If only everything that tried to get into your home would be the same!

The days of harmless entertainment are certainly behind us.  Media alone represents a substantial portion of our lives and upbringing.  I suspect that if you’re a believer in Christ, you too recognize that there is a huge spiritual battle happening in the realms of media.  TV shows shove ungodly behavior and lifestyles down our throat daily.  Kids programs are inundated with secular humanistic thought.  Some secular radio ads promote the local drug industry.  Movies are full of violence and sexuality. Magazines are glad to teach dangerous promiscuous behaviors.  And music…well that has had a lot of problems for a lot of years.  We are now under full bore indoctrination to the things and thoughts of this world, and it is creeping into homes all around you.  

Choices.  As children of the King, we have a choice.

As obedient children, do not be conformed to the passions of your former ignorance, but as he who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct…” -1 Peter 1:14-15

What goes in, is what goes out.  We believe that we can help you focus on that which is pure and holy and good.  And out of all the choices vying to get into your home, perhaps it is better to let in something beneficial, and not just something that is even generally harmless. 

Is that worth passing along?  Would you pass along Local Christian Radio to a friend?  Through the message of Christ aired on this station, you could make an impact in a life, and also in our culture.  One more thing…thanks for trusting us in your own home!
