In the same room my baby sleeps in!!! ACK!
One got mad at me for changing a light fixture (MAN, those guys can run fast) and one was panicked on the floor of my bedroom when we turned the lights on.
And this is not the first time.
It’s just the first time they showed up anywhere we cared about. We also have black widows in the garage, see, so we’re not hyper about spiders, just about them where the baby sleeps.
Unlike my father who sprayed religiously, we are fairly anti-toxic-junk in our house. And terminally lazy. So, since this isn’t the first time, they’re likely well-established and travelling the walls at night. Excellent. So, today we’re doing something very not-green. We’re having the insides of the walls dusted. TL thinks I’m out of my mind. Maybe you agree. Maybe I agree, but sanity is not on the table for me when there are brown recluses in our bedrooms at night.
The bug guy said that it would take forever to get all the outlets and light switch panels removed, so he’d knock a bunch off the price if we’d do it. “But it’s going to take you forever.”
My kids have PRACTICE with screwdrivers. Even the five-year-old is a master. We bought a few extra screwdrivers and woke up the kids early. Let’s take the house apart! Less than an hour, yo.
Wish me luck.
