Pests. What do you think of them? Oh, you know, disgusting creatures like insects,rodents and whatnot? I hate pests. Hate is an understatement. I loathe pests, actually, even though I have some soft spots for animals in my heart.
I don’t know what went wrong, but recently I discovered that some of my books and some of the furnitures are being destroyed by pests. I can’t be sure what it is. Is it termites? Roaches? I have no idea…but there are tiny holes everywhere, evidently being eaten by unidentified insects. I couldn’t find the source, but I have taken the initiative to get rid of whatever pests there is by using insecticides.
There are no evidence of any pests, though. So far I have yet to see the remains of termites or roaches anywhere after using the insecticide. 🙁 And yet the destruction continues.
This is really upsetting and very annoying. Not sure what to do to stop those unseen enemies from destroying my things and my furnitures. Should I call pest control when I don’t even know where those pests are? I heard pest control can be quite costly. Would they be able to trace those rotten pests for me? I wouldn’t want to waste unnecessary time and money by calling pest control. And besides, I have a young child and a precious pet at home, so I am not really sure if I’m comfortable using excessive chemical that could actually bring them harm at home if not monitored properly. 🙁
Any suggestion on what should I do? Any natural remedies you guys can share with me? 🙁 I’m really sick and tired of using those sprays and having to mop and clean up those things with dettol and stuff because I’m afraid that my boy and my cat will get poisoned by the residues.
Cleffairy: Expensive lesson learned. As soon as you identify any pests, just kill them. One should never have any mercy towards pests. They are destructive and you should always get rid of them at first glance or they will breed trouble for you and your entire household.
