I think small creatures have landed in our neighborhood, and they have been taking over our house the past few months. It is getting quite annoying.
We had to cover up a hole in our family room to keep the mice out. We have our home theater equipment in the garage, so we have the wires go through the wall that is adjacent to the garage. We started finding mice in the house, and they were coming through teeny tiny holes in the wall, where the cables went through.
Then, the lizards came. We have no idea how they got into our house. My son caught one in the garage, and decided to make a habitat so that he could keep it for a few days. I finally freaked out and my husband made him release it, “to nature, to be with his lizard friends”. Then I was in our dining room one afternoon, and saw this lizard on the screen to our sliding glass door…on the inside of the house.
Luckily my son was home and was able to get the lizard outside, safely. Good thing my son has some awesome lizard catching skills. Because I was completely freaked out that this thing was just hanging out…inside the house, like no big deal.
And of course, the day after we got rid of the lizard, we had a new set of creatures appear. The gnats….all 200 of them, buzzing around our house. Totally annoying, and totally gross. We had no food out, and we’ve never had this problem before. They won’t go away!
I started researching “how to kill gnats”. I found this home remedy trick of using vinegar and dish soap in bowls. The gnats are attracted to this combo. But I’m pretty much over seeing bowls of vinegar and soap around my house for over a week now.
Is this a summer thing? What’s next, the ants? I swear if the ants show up, I’m calling the pest control!
