First off, I hope y'all had a fabulous 4th of July! We had some great times with friends who drove down to Nebraska to see us, and had some firework action too.
And then we also had to deal with the plague that hit our home.
Millions of them.
My husband had this looked at by "professionals"
They say there isn't much we can do. They are on a migratory pattern and therefore have invaded every inch of our lawn, landscape, and even,
My house. Oh be still my heart.
On a postive note, they are mostly contained to the basement.
But, pessimists, don't fear, I have a down side. This is where our bedrooms are. And bathroom.
Did I mention they crunch?
I no longer go downstairs without flipflops.
I do believe that we are gaining despite being told nothing will kill them.We vacuum 5 times a day.
We have used up more than what is humanly natural in pesticides.
I have discovered that even room deodorizer will do the trick. Albeit a slow death with that, its still a death- and lets face it, that's my goal. Don't judge me. You sit on the toilet with one of those things coming towards your bare toes and tell me you wouldn't do the same thing. And enjoy it.
Have any of you faced these miserable creatures?
What are your suggestions?

Sorry about that!
