Don't shoot! Yeah right.

This pest has been on the stressful deck the past 3 nights from 2am and until last night kept to the top so I couldn't risk shooting and putting a whole in the roof.

Last night it kindly was on one of the poles, giving a great opportunity to take a shot - which I did. Will not tell the rest of the story as animal rights people will get upset.

This has been growing in an area where I have kept it back until yesterday when I was triming it and noticed that it had snuck around the back of a pohutukawa and started to make its way up the truck. Not any more - that effectively signed the death warrant for this plant.
