I really don’t like pests. No, I don’t mean my kids. (Ha! Ha!) I mean the kind that gets into your home and walk on 4 legs or 8! Mice, spiders, flies, wasps, etc… They are really NOT welcome in my house! As a matter of fact, my husband likes them even less than I do. He immediately turns into a little girl when something is flying at his head. I actually saw him push my 2 year old little girl out of the way and take off running when a bee came flying near him once. He didn’t know I was watching from the window and I was not happy. LOL!
Besides being a nuisance, pests can do some real damage in your home. Termites and even ants can cause trouble if not terminated. We once had ants eat through the support beams on our back porch and what started as a painting job, turned into a huge reconstruction of the porch. What a mess! It’s important to always keep on top of pests as soon as they’re noticed and even being proactive and protecting against pests is best. If not, you could have some trouble on your hands like we did!
