It started with seeing these poking around the kitchen:

Don't get me wrong, bugs have their place in the world. I don't think it's wise to be afraid of things not even 1/1000 of your size, but these creatures have been coming into our house in full since the warm weather and there's only so much ant-smashing I'm willing to do in the kitchen. We are declaring war on the creepy crawlies in the house - I called the pest control and they'll be here tomorrow morning. Not a bad deal either - they guarantee against mice, rats, wasps, bees, spiders, millipedes (threatening, I know), ants, basically anything but termites. That's extra. Good thing we have a stone foundation. So I hope all the little things pack their bags if they want to keep living, otherwise they will be making a trip to bug heaven soon.
