"Ahhh! ELLIOTT!!! ELLIOTT!!!"


I do realize that this picture will stay only as long as the wifey hasn't noticed it is here. The purpose of this post is to fill people in on the recent Bain of Alisa's existence. The oh so SNEAKY cricket! Crickets and creepy crawlers have been keeping me busy on the weekends since we got here. It was also the origin of our A/C outage debochal. We were trying to evict them by cutting down surrounding weeds.

The catalyst for this post was also a little chirping friend. I would have taken a picture of the incident but due to the inappropriate content of Alisa in the shower I have to use this fabricated cricket rather than the actual shower intruder. I heard two blood curdling screams this evening while making my roast beef sammich. Apparently the cricket attacked her from the ceiling. She was pretty shaken up about it. I don't blame her though. We have to plug the drains when not showering because they crawl up and we are always finding crickets and earwigs in the bathtub. My extermination skills took care of the roaches at least...and the black widow as previously mentioned. Well thats all for now. And I imagine you won't hear from me too often but I thought I'd give a third party perspective to the home invasions Alisa has to deal with on a daily basis.

I figured your summertime job would have cured that fear!

Nono, if anything it worsened it.

I had crickets coming in from my bathtub when I was living at the UA. I kept a tidy can of cricket bug spray on hand. I constantly sprayed the crack they were coming from too. It took a few(~4) months, but they stopped coming (mostly). A few follow up sprays were needed occasionally.

I have to be the strong, bug killer 'round here. My husband is afraid to death of spiders, if he ever saw one in the shower, and he has, I have to be the big hero and either wash it down the drain or kill it myself. Enjoy it!
