That's one advantage to having stuff built from 100 year aged oak. It's so hard that they don;t bother it. The only ting I have to watch is new construction stuff that is exposed to the outside.

I am not exaggerating, or at least not too much. I have swatted 100s of them things this year with a badminton racket. My batting average is approaching .500 and it is very satisfying, therapeutic almost, to connect with one.

I've heard lots go thru the barrel fan blades on our porch. "PTINGGG!"
(at night, many a june bug has met the same end too..I put a light right behind the fan one night and it sounded like a machine gun right after the sun set)

Love to kill these things with badminton rackets. Already over 100 and the season just started!
