If you saw my post about this horrible bug, you know how I feel about bugs.
There aren’t a lot of things that I’m afraid of. Snakes don’t freak me out, heights are fine, but for some reason bugs scare me to death. There is nothing worse than seeing a roach in my house. As soon as I see one, I scream, usually jump on furniture and shriek until my husband has killed it. It sometimes will still upset me later that night and I’ll worry that another one might be in my bedroom as I sleep. If my husband can’t find the roach to kill it, I’m freaked out for days and constantly worried about seeing it.
Since we live in front of a huge wooded area, there are a lot of creatures in our yard, on our porch and sometimes in our house. That bug in the photo above was on our back porch only a few feet from the door. And this spider was in the garage:
As you can imagine, pest control has become very important in my life.
