The pest control people are coming tomorrow. And every time they come, we’ve to find a place to ‘hide’ for the rest of the day coz the smell is too strong. So usually, we’ll go shopping or go to my BIL’s place to hang out till night time. Of coz the smell is still there, but at least it’s bearable.
We engage them every 2 to 3 months. Actually we can see some cockroaches in the house within a month after the service. But they are usually quite stoned and easy to whack. I’m really scared of cockroaches, especially those that can fly. So whenever I see one, I’ll shout for help and hubby will come to the rescue. If hubby’s not at home, my next saviour is Kakak. She’s not afraid of roaches, but is very afraid of lizards. So when it comes to lizards, I’ll be her heroine. hehehehe
Another nuisance in the house is ants. Once the chemicals wear out (normally 2-3 months’ time), I can see ants trails coming in through the kitchen window and door. I really hate those tiny ants. They’ll conquer your food within minutes if you leave them uncovered.
I’m actually worried about the chemical smell and how it can affect young children. According to the pest control people, it’s not harmful but may make them nauseous if exposed directly. How do you handle those pests in your house? Do you engage a pest control service or you use some products that can keep them away?
