Cajun Crustacean Infestation

Of all the things I imagined would jolt me out of my busyness and onto my blog, I never expected it to be a crawfish
About 3 weeks ago, we started seeing the occasional crawfish on the driveway. Then one appeared just outside the door from the garage into the laundry room. They were always dead, so we just ignored them after sweeping them away.
Sunday morning, though, I went to get in the car, and there was Boudreaux, rearing up on his hind legs, saying in his Cajun accent, “You may be 100 times taller than me but I will prevail!” Snapping his front pincers and menacing those ridiculously long antennae all the while.

The hubby and I laughed it off, but then, this morning, there were at least 5 of them working their way across our yard and into the street. The youngest (or at least runtiest) of them had been squished (likely by an early morning bike or stroller) as it attempted to cross the sidewalk.

I think that brings us up to a dozen or so in the past month. What the minimum number of unlikely critters to constitute a plague?
