termites who like to swarm to the lights at night, gnaw away at our home, and evict us for the dreaded termite tenting, i welcome you. i like to think of it as a forced medicine cabinet, freezer, refrigerator, cabinets, and pantry spring cleaning.
rats who like to find sneaky ways into our walls that thwart even the exterminators, i welcome you. getting ticked does nothing, i’ve come to learn. but i do hate (hate) the wretched smell that accompanies your demise in our walls (we must have very welcoming walls as this is the second death in three months).
flies that emerge as a result of rats (yuck), come on in.
roaches (i hate even writing that word), you’re determined to be here and at least i can now spy you without cussing.
