I think I’ve been pretty cordial with bugs over the years. I don’t freak out when I see them (unless they’re jumping out of my shoe), I don’t kill them unless they’re INSIDE my house, and I generally respect that they’re part of the natural ecosystem, so I let them be. But now, I’m soooooooooooooo over them.
In the past couple of weeks, bugs have, uh, bugged me in the following ways:
- My dog has fleas, requiring a great deal of cleaning, laundering and spraying*
- There are termites in my bf’s apartment (at least I think that’s what they are)
- I think there’s a cricket colony in my backyard
- I saw a SLUG, a locust, a wasp, and about 7 bumblebees while I was mowing.
I can’t wait for the first frost!
*note: I realize this is small potatoes compared to what Hannah has dealt with, but STILL!
