We’ve had the fruit fly swarms of doom circling in our kitchen with a few scouts discovered in the bathroom and living areas.
And the giant ants that have appeared periodically since spring and just when I get geared up to do battle they seem to disappear and so I don’t buy the ant traps at the store.
And then tonight I found mouse droppings in the cabinet where we keep the beans and rice and all the plastic food storage containers. Ick, ick, and double ick!!! They’d chewed a hole in a bag of sushi rice and there were some scattered black beans. Everything else seemed fine but I’ve pulled everything out of the cupboard until we can get some traps or an exterminator. Not much hope of plugging the hole as there is also a big gap between this and the next cabinet.
My stomach is still churning from the mouse mess. Thank God for husbands with strong intestinal fortitude.
