There are a lot of insects in the world. That is for sure. And because the farm borders the highveld and the lowveld Kudu is home to many of them. Just leave the lights on your stoep on for a while and a million species seem to be attracted all at once to participate in a suicide mission. Look carefully, there are myriads of stunningly beautiful moths, strange bugs and on a balmy evening your lavender tree will be lit up with fireflies. The butterflies that have been spotted on the farm are among the most beautiful in the world. And what would a hot summer's day in Africa be like without the accompanying chorus of cicadas, grasshoppers and crickets?
